According to the denverpost.com, a 14-year-old girl was killed in a rollover accident east of Calhan, CO, when her brother lost control of the car. Jae Ellis, was killed in the accident and pronounced dead at the scene and her brother, 16-year-old Jourdan Ellis, was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The driver apparently lost control of the vehicle causing it to veer off the right-side of the road striking a fence before rolling. Neither drugs, alcohol, nor speeding were presumed to be a factor in the accident. The crash is still under investigation at this time by the Colorado State Patrol.

A man who needed a life saving surgery was laid off from his employment and his insurance company tried to deny his claim over a $0.26 mistake. 33-year-old Sergio Branco was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and needed a bone marrow transplant costing $500,000.00 to save his life To make matters worse, when he returned to work after taking his federally granted leave time under the Family and Medical Leave Act, he was immediately laid off. However, he was not that worried because Branco was still eligible for extended coverage under the COBRA program at a monthly fee of $518.26. For the first payment, his wife made a check out for $518.00 and forgot to add the additional $0.26 of the total. The company that was handling his insurance payments did not notify the Brancos of their mistake. In the middle of his treatment, Mr. Branco was told by the hospital that they could not continue because he did not have any insurance. Technically the payment was still due and the Brancos said they would make up the difference. However, they were told by the company overseeing his payments that his former employer had instructed them not to make any more payments – meaning that now – his COBRA insurance was scheduled for cancellation. After making calls to the Department of Labor and getting nowhere, the Brancos hired a lawyer. After several months, they were reinstated and received the treatment that will Mr. Branco’s life.
