Video Description by Mason Ellis:

I have been a quadriplegic since January 19, 2015.

I was injured in a car accident on January 19, 2015, halfway through my senior year of high school and on the academic honors track. I was driving a 2005 Mitsubishi Montero (Mini SUV) along with a friend who luckily did not sustain as many injuries as myself and is back to normal by now. We were on a country road that we had never been on before. The road we were on was blacktopped, slightly going uphill for about a mile. At the top of the hill was a four-way with no stop signs. We went straight, which transitioned into gravel and went downhill after the intersection. I lost control and hit an embankment. I was ejected out of the car because we were not wearing our seatbelts. I was told that I was lucky that I was not wearing my seatbelt because I was 6’2″ at the time and would have more than likely been injured worse or not even be here. I was found 96′ from where my car stopped rolling. I fractured my left shin, broke my left femur, left collarbone, both jaws, palate of my mouth, top six front teeth, cracked skull, and bruised brain. I was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and was then life-lined to Eskenazi. I was there for 30 days and was then taken to RHI to do rehab for 29 days, totaling 59 days away from home.
