On February 2, 1997, Antonio Wrightâ€™s life was forever changed when his Pathfinder flipped a total of eight times.
During the crash, the former Hinds Community College linebacker was thrown from the vehicle where he fractured his L1 vertebrae while shattering the L2. In addition, Wrightâ€™s spinal cord was twisted while all of his internal organs were shifted. While the doctors credit Wrightâ€™s physical condition with keeping him alive, the former college athlete says it was â€śGodâ€™s graceâ€ť that prevented his death and instead left him a L2 or waistline paraplegic.
