Year after spinal injury from wreck, firefighter from Rockwall striving to recover
Doctors told Emily Colbert that hed stay that way. They probably thought I was nuts, but I told them no, we werent going to accept it, she said. Firefighters from Garland and Rockwall came to the hospital in support. Without them and his family at his side, Devon Colbert said the lengthy hospital stay would have been much more difficult. Colleagues pitched in to help, including with household needs and bills. They hosted fundraisers like a January golf tournament in Crandall and a March ball at the Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Lakefront. The Garland Fire Fighters Association also sold about 500 T-shirts in different designs to benefit the Colberts, said association president David Riggs. One design reads No brother stands alone on the back. With Devon, it touched us all because we feel like hes part of our family, and hes in a bad way, said Garland Fire Chief Raymond Knight. Finding his way back As he recovered, Colbert said doctors at the Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation in Dallas decided in April it would be best for him to go home in a wheelchair. Theres a little bit of fear whenever youre getting out because so much has changed, just how youre going to adjust to everything, Devon Colbert said.

Common injuries from auto accidents Injuries from auto accidents can range greatly but commonly involve the head, neck and brain. Vehicular collisions are responsible for 28 percent of traumatic brain injuries, according to data from the Family Caregiver Alliance.

Alcohol is known to be a contributor in accidents with one person being injured every two minutes as a result of being involved in an alcohol-related wreck. The FCA calculates that number as a total of 321,000 people annually. Further data from the Family Caregiver Alliance show that traumatic brain injuries were recorded in 41 percent of all motor vehicle accidents caused by intoxication that resulted in fatalities in 1996. Alcohol was noted to be a contributing factor in a total of seven percent of all accidents in which people sustained brain injuries that year. A look at drunk driving in Washington D.C.
