Wednesday, December 14, 2011 - A desperate family called KUSI's Michael Turko when a hit and run driver destroyed their only vehicle. Turko says they can't afford to replace it, and they're running out of options with their three special needs kids.
Like so many people these days, the Deans family is barely hanging on, living on the edge. They lost their home when they couldn't refinance an adjustable rate mortgage. Medical bills and the rising cost of living wiped out their savings. They made do, and depended on a beat up eight year old van to get around. Now they've lost that... and that just could be the last straw.
