Javan's Story

Graham, Javan's dad describes how 27 years ago Javan's life changed forever. Graham tells the story because Javan is unable to speak since his collision. The roads wet and diesel had been spilt onto the road there had already been one accident that day. As Javan approached the junction traffic was backed up and he applied the brakes and skidded to avoid hitting the queued traffic. Javan hit a tree and the front wheel was pushed up inside of his vehicle which caused a massive head injury. Graham explained what happened that day and the effects the collision has had on both of their lives. "When you see a report in the paper that someone has been involved in a car collision and sustained life-changing injuries it doesn't necessarily mean they will just walk with a limp for the rest of their life - more likely they will be just like Javan."
