A tractor-trailer on the road ahead of Shawn Medick took a turn too quickly and overturned, hitting another truck that flipped onto Medick’s car, pinning him inside the wreckage. But with the help of local first responders, Medick was extricated and flown to Grady Memorial Hospital and has spent the months since healing, recovering and learning how to function again.
