Impairment
He has had his right leg amputated above the knee following a motorcycle accident in 2015. His left leg also suffered broken bones, nerve damage and torn knee ligaments. He was riding at night on an unfamiliar road in Hampton, VA, when he misjudged the road and hit the curb at full speed. The crash launched him into a tree, severing his right leg and severely damaging the left. He dragged himself 30 feet back into the road where a passing driver called for help. He underwent more than 20 surgeries during his recovery. (summitdaily.com, 13 Jan 2018; af.mil, 16 Jul 2016; dcmilitary.com, 2016)
