Jay Traylor | October 2014
“On January 26, 2014 Jay Traylor fell asleep at the wheel of his car returning from working with a friend and hit the metal guardrail along the edge of the highway. Instead absorbing the impact, part of the rail broke off, pierced his car floorboard, and severed his right leg and damaged his left leg. Traylor, a former Marine, administered a tourniquet and called 911. He has since lost both legs to the accident
A lawsuit, of which Traylor is a part, alleges that Trinity Highway Products LLC, the maker of the guardrail, altered the design to save money and that this change has led to severe injuries when cars have hit the rails.”
Truly inspiring. Traylor lost both of his legs and still considers himself lucky. I have met many people who would rather wallow in the unfortunate situations that have been thrust upon them, but Jay is not one of them. After only a month or 2 on his prosthetics, he is walking short distances without the use of a cane.
