Thanksgiving at Home for Boy Injured in Bus Stop Accident

Trevor and his mom. Trevor and his mom.

It is truly a happy Thanksgiving for one Savannah family. Their son is home after months of painful rehab in Atlanta. It's been a long road to recovery for 13-year-old Trevor Daniels. In august, he was hit by a truck trying to catch the school bus. Today, his family was thankful he was even there.

Trevor is all smiles this Thanksgiving. Three months ago, he wasn't able to smile. "I was going to the bus and a truck hit me right here and I went from one place to another," he told us.

Trevor was in a coma for several weeks and still suffers from brain damage and memory loss. "I can't remember whose names...."

He's home now, looking good and ready for the holidays. "I feel good now. But it was bad after I got hit and woke up."

"It's a blessing to have him walking and have him here," said Trevor's mom, Rosalind Quarterman.

After a long and painful rehab program--not to mention expensive. Trevor is seeing faces he hasn't seen in a while. His mom couldn't be happier. "It's been a scary three months and we are very happy to see him and he is doing really good now."

Trevor says he was looking forward to eating some turkey and seeing his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Three months ago, he almost slipped away. Now he's on the road to recovery. "I'm super happy," he laughed.

Trevor got his turkey and stuffing and all the trimmings. But, his family still needs some help with a $500,000 medical bill. If you'd like to help Trevor's family, a fund has been set up at the Bank of America on Bull Street in Savannah. Just ask for the Trevor Daniels Contribution Fund.
