MOUNT VERNON, NY - A story of one family's trials and survival which started after an unfortunate accident of a son back in summer of 2005 is in the book titled Shattered in a Split Second penned by author Vanessa Richardson Bagby.
One of the most awful things that can happen to a family happened to the Bagbys. As Atiba's family huddled together for support and sought comfort in their faith in God, they prayed that he would make it through the night. What they never expected was an enduring family saga that would stretch to every corner of their lives. Would his parents' marriage survive? How would his two kid brothers cope? What secrets did the family hold that would finally come to light? And who was driving the car that hit Atiba in the first place?
