Pueblo grocery owner and family in serious traffic accident
MARFA – The owner of the Pueblo Foods grocery store in Marfa and his family were involved in a serious two-vehicle traffic accident last week in New Hampshire.
Joseph Welsh, his wife Liliana, and two of their children had flown from their El Paso home to Concord, New Hampshire last week to visit their older son who attends St. Stephen’s boarding school in Concord.
As they left the Concord airport in a rental car on Thursday night, they were struck from behind by a speeding SUV.
Nathan Welsh, 12, sustained severe head trauma and was the most seriously injured. He remains in Children’s Hospital in Boston and was undergoing surgery Wednesday afternoon.
His sister, Carling, spent time in a Concord hospital, as did Mr. and Mrs. Welsh.
All have since been released, with Liliana Aranda Welsh, a Presidio native, and Carling flying back to El Paso.
Meanwhile Joseph Welsh remains in Boston with Nathan.
Patrick Welsh spent time with his family over the weekend and has returned to boarding school in Concord.
There was no information on the SUV driver, but New Hampshire and Concord authorities are investigating the accident.
The information for this report comes form the Facebook account of Joseph Welsh.
