Two Sweetwater High basketball players
who were injured in a weekend car wreck in Loudon County are expected
to make a full recovery.
Sweetwater students and players Raven
Jefford and Jordan Davis were passengers in a car that wrecked on a
curvy road. Davis was released early on from the hospital, but
Jefford suffered a very serious head injury and was very lucky to
survive the crash, according to her mother, Dawn Abbott.
Abbott said doctors at first did not
know if her daughter was going to live. Abbott said Jefford's hair
caught in one of the car's window, keeping her from being thrown from
the vehicle and likely dying.
"She is very, very lucky so far," Abbott said.
In fact, just moments after talking
with The Advocate & Democrat Tuesday, Abbot learned her daughter
would be released from the University of Tennessee Medical Center
that same day.
