A young Charlotte woman is adjusting to a new life after suffering a traumatic brain injury in a crash in September.
The 21-year-old woman has spent the majority of the last seven weeks in a coma after an enraged driver hit her car head-on and took off.
She now has to wear special glasses to mitigate double vision and one of her arms remains in a cast.
Despite the disheartening circumstances of the crash, the woman has maintained an optimistic outlook, claiming that her faith has only been strengthened by the crash.
She still has many goals and ambitions after surviving the crash and plans on eventually becoming a pharmacist.
According to witnesses, the hit-and-run driver was driving a silver SUV.
Each year in the United States, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. Furthermore, recent data reveals that, on average, around 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury per year. Head injuries are no joke and should always be taken seriously, no matter how lucid the victim may seem afterwards.
