Spinal Cord Injury
A Twin Cities teenager who was paralyzed in a car crash is back home with her family. Three months ago, Amarya Ward-West’s dad, Earl Ward, crashed his vehicle in a construction zone in St. Paul. Investigators say Ward ran from the scene, leaving his kids — 8-year-old Almond and 14-year-old Amarya — alone and injured.
Jack Jablonski, the high school hockey player who was injured during a game three years ago, has made remarkable progress since the paralyzing hit on the ice. Saturday, he joined 15 other patients with spinal cord injuries at Courage Kenny for the “Walk to Victory over Paralysis.”
For the second time since he was released from rehab, high school hockey player Jack Jablonski has returned to the hospital.
One week after he left Sister Kenny Institute, high school hockey player Jack Jablonski is once again being hospitalized.
The Minnesota State High School League is reminding hockey coaches and officials about eliminating checking from behind after a player suffered a paralyzing injury.
