Four months after a tragic car accident, a Hatton girl is defying the odds.
Alison Martin was involved in a car accident earlier this year that killed her sister, Caitlyn. Now, Martin has been selected by her classmates as the freshman high school Homecoming Attendant.
Alison suffered a severe brain injury. According to our news partners at the Decatur Daily, doctors told Alison's parents they should be prepared she could died. But after three brain surgeries, Alison is walking, something doctors didn't think was entirely possible. Alison is in school on a limited basis, living life at a new normal.
