Young boy walking again after car wreck left him nearly paralyzed

After more than a year of recovery from an accident, a young boy is walking again for the first time.

CIBOLO - After more than a year of recovery from an accident, a young boy is walking again for the first time.

Carter Wilbanks, 13, was in accident in anWaco in March of 2016 that left him nearly paralyzed, with head injuries and two broken legs.

He has been recovering ever since and making huge strides.

“He is doing so good,” said Tara Wilbanks, Carter’s mother.

Last year when we caught up with Carter, he was riding a bike on his own. His family now says he doesn’t want to be in a wheelchair anymore.

“He's not using the wheelchair at school anymore he said he is going to use his walker,” said John Wilbanks.

Carter attends Canyon Middle School in New Braunfels.

“He is so fiercely independent. He is just a little force to be reckoned with,” added Tara.
