A picture of resilience
Walton Man defies odds after brain injury merely by surviving
An oak tree on Green Road in Walton with two small dents in it is a small reminder of what happened to Matthew Reed.
It was Feb. 12, 2005, when Reed wrapped his 1997 Chevy Cavalier around the tree, yet survived.
"The right front tire of the car was touching the right rear tire of the car and it looked like that tree was coming through a nonexistent moon roof in the middle," said his mother, Meg Lusby of Taylor Mill. "The inside of the car was smashed down to 15 inches wide."
