Austin High School graduate fighting for her life after rollover in new town of Nashville

Posted: Updated:

A 2016 Austin High School graduate is fighting for her life after her SUV rolled over and she was ejected in Nashville, Tennessee.

19-year-old Karey Westrich lived in Austin from 2007 until this past year, when her family relocated to Nashville to run the new Jellystone Park there.

Her grandparents own the Jellystone Park in Austin.

Westrich went to Southland Elementary School for 4th and 5th grades and then attended Pacelli Catholic Elementary from 6th to 8th grade, then continued on to become a Packer.

On Sunday, Westrich was driving in Nashville when her car rolled over and she was ejected.

She sustained face fractures, fractures in the base of her skull, and is having small brain bleeds and swelling.

She also had abdominal bleeding and severed her liver, in which 40 percent had to be removed.

Westrich is only able to breathe with a ventilator.

She's undergone many surgeries, including two on Friday.

Her family has set up a gofundme page, as well as a caringbridge page to help with medical costs.
