CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – A group of Parkland Little League players visited an 11-year-old boy Saturday at Broward Health Medical Center as he recovers from a car crash that killed his mother.

The 2016 World Series players presented Michael Weiner with a signed baseball bat and other team apparel.

Michael, who is a member of the Parkland Little League, is expected to make a full recovery.

His father, Mark Weiner, has volunteered with the program for many years and is a current board member.

Meanwhile, current and former students of Michael’s mother, Christianne Weiner, have been mourning the loss of the beloved Coral Springs Elementary School teacher alongside her family.

Coral Springs police said she was killed Tuesday morning when she was struck by the driver of a stolen car at the intersection of Sample Road and Northwest 101st Avenue.

Police said that driver, Eric Abraham, 17, faces several charges, including vehicular homicide. He was denied bond this week and is currently hospitalized for a broken leg and a possibly dislocated hip.

Three other teens were detained after the crash, including 18-year-old Tyree Goodwin.

A GoFundMe page was created for anyone who wants to donate to the Weiner family.
