Updates on accident victim, Baby Darrell

Here’s the latest on some of the people and things we’ve featured lately:

Accident victim Allan Wodenscheck

Bremerton resident Allan Wodenscheck, who was seriously injured in a car accident on Dec. 16, is now up and walking, with the help of crutches.

Wodenscheck, 24, has been recovering at home in Bremerton, since Christmas Day after a near-fatal collision with a pickup truck. The head-on accident happened near the entrance to the Agate Pass Bridge.

He underwent surgery to repair a tendon in his left knee and a shattered femur in his left leg. He also has a broken right ankle and a broken collarbone.

On New Year’s Eve, friends and family gathered to greet him for the first time since he came home. He made an appearance at a benefit held in his honor in his hometown of Burley.

On Jan. 30, his mother Shelly posted a video of Allan walking with his foot still in a support boot and with crutches. He received the Okay from his doctor to begin walking, although he has several more months of physical therapy ahead of him.

To help, donations can be mailed to 5307 State Highway 303, No. 192, Bremerton, WA 98311.
