Injured Port St. Lucie Boy Finally Comes Home after March School Bus Crash

Posted on May 15, 2012

It’s been a long journey home for one boy who was critically injured after the school bus he was riding in was struck by a semi truck on Okeechobee Road in western Fort Pierce on March 26. Ten students were taken to the hospital in serious or critical condition after the tragic school bus accident, and one student died in the impact.

This is the first time the honor roll student has been home since he was airlifted to St. Mary’s Medical Center. According to, the 11-year-old was nearly brain dead after the Fl bus accident. Doctors had to remove part of his skull and he was placed in a medically-induced coma for three weeks while they worked to save his life.

A large group of parents, well-wishers, and classmates came out for the boy’s Port St. Lucie homecoming and some in the crowd couldn’t help but be amazed that he was retuning home at all.

One youngster, marveling at his classmate’s recovery, said, “It’s a very big miracle he’s okay … that he can walk, talk, eat.”

Although the injured boy has come a long way, he still has to have surgery to replace the front sides of his skull and he will require many hours of intense therapy before he can return to school.
