In the summer of 2005, one of the most awful things that can happen to a family happened to the Bagbys. Their 25 year-old son Atiba, a motorcycle enthusiast, was clinging to life after a hit-and-run accident on the highway. 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 this family hold that would finally come to light? And who was driving the car that hit Atiba in the first place? Through her unbearable pain, a mother relives those awful moments in this heart-throbbing, true-life account of her family’s survival. She teaches us all that with the Lord’s good grace and the courage to stand tall, anything except death can be fixed. Part-mystery, part-love letter to her son, Shattered in a Split Second asks, when the world shuts down on you, and there’s nowhere to turn, what do you do? Do you crumble to your knees, or do you stand tall? For more information please go to www.shatteredinasplitsecond.com
