On Saturday, July 13th, around 6pm, four West Brook high school students were involved in a terrible car wreck in the 8300 block of Brooks Road at South Major Drive in Beaumont, TX. The car hydroplaned which is when the driver lost control of the vehicle and it then flipped eight times and collided with a tree before coming to a stop. 17 year old, Noah Washington, was ejected from the car, resulting in a broken nose, the loss of one of his ears, blood on his brain, and a break so bad to his spine that it was completely disconnected, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down.
After being emergency air-lifted from Beaumont to Herman Memorial Hospital in Houston, TX, Noah went under an extensive surgery involving screws being placed in to hold his spine together, as well as his ear being sewn back on.
Noah has been an avid athlete since he was a child. He eventually decided to retire his football helmet and focus solely on his passion for basketball in hopes of getting a college scholarship. Noah's mother, Krystal, was a constant face in the bleachers, cheering her son on every chance she had.
Despite the emotional trauma, as you can imagine, Noah and his family will be accumulating a significant amount of medical expenses that insurance won't cover as well as the expenses of the lifestyle change he will be undergoing, ie, wheelchair ramp for home, wheelchair accessible vehicle, etc.
I urge you to please lend your help to this family in their desperate time of need.
