SUISUN CITY - The Suisun City Housing Authority is pitching in to help a Suisun City mother shoulder the expenses of seeing her injured son, who is hospitalized in Oakland.

The money is being turned into a gas card for the mother of 10-year-old Jordan Callison who was severely injured in the Nov. 17 rush hour crash on Highway 12 between Fairfield and Rio Vista.

The crash that fractured Jordan Callison's spine also killed two of his brothers, Demari Hutchinson, 12, and Emanuel Callison, 7. Regina Jackson was also injured in the accident.

His working mother is now shuttling between her home in Suisun City and Children's Hospital in Oakland to be with her son, as well as caring for a 2-year-old child.

Anyone wishing to help the efforts can drop off cash donations at the Housing Authority Office in Suisun City Hall, 701 Civic Center Blvd.

For more information, call 421-7333.

This is one of several fund-raising efforts local community groups have held to help the family.

Earlier this month, the Fairfield-Suisun Christian Center held a fund-raiser with games, refreshments and music to help with Jordan Callison's medical care.

Nicola Bucci, 34, of San Francisco, the driver of the vehicle that slammed into the car carrying the Callisons and Hutchinson, has since been charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

Those interested in helping the family can also make out checks to the Jordan A. Callison Relief Fund, Travis Credit Union, Attn. MSA department, 1 Travis Way, Vacaville, Calif. 95696.
