A Baylor School graduate was one of two people badly injured in a single-vehicle accident in Murfreesboro on Sunday.

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Districts 6 and 8 responded to the accident at the intersection of Osborne Lane and Howell Drive around 4 a.m.

When crews arrived on the scene, they discovered a Ford Mustang upside down on its roof. Crews had to extricate two victims from underneath the flattened roof.

Both were taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt Medical Center for life-threatening injuries.

Dayna Bruell, sister of Julian Jones, said in an Internet post;

"Early in the morning on May 25, 2014, my brother, Julian Jones, was in a serious car accident.  The convertible he was driving flipped, and he was airlifted to a trauma center.  He will need surgery (possibly multiple surgeries) and burn treatment.  His health insurance should cover most of that, but he has additional expenses. Some of these are medical, like deductible and copays.  Others are home expenses, bills, and possible transportation to and from the trauma center after he's discharged from the hospital.  All of his family support comes from out of town, so donations may also be used to help with transportation and lodging for his family.  

"The outpouring of love and support we've seen is incredible, and we are so appreciative of all of the calls, texts, messages, and visits.  Anything you can donate will help.  Let's keep Cheering for Coach Julian!!!"-
