New Mexico Teen Driver Beats OddsPosted on Jun 26, 2010
Jordan Beard, the teen driver, sustained multiple injuries and was airlifted to a hospital for medical care. For a few months she remained in a coma, and doctors did not expect her to live due to her severe head trauma.
Jordan came out of her coma and started her path to recovery. Because she sustained brain injuries, the doctors don’t know exactly what her outcome will be. But her family and the doctors are amazed at her progress so far. After spending nine months in the hospital, she came home on May 15, 2010, to Melrose, New Mexico, to continue her recovery and to graduate from Melrose High School.
Car accidents in New Mexico can lead to serious injuries, and New Mexico Police say that this was a near-fatal car wreck. We are glad to hear of Jordan’s positive progress and wish her well in her continued recovery.
