She says it was the worst day of her life. But now, almost a year later, Casey Schiesser is getting her independence back.
Schiesser, 22, was paralyzed from her waist down in a car crash last August. When she crashed, she was on her way to her former fiancé's house.
She said she remembers that she left from working a double shift at a restaurant and had been arguing with her fiancé. It was foggy, she said, and the road was curvy. She said she knows that she struck a tree but doesn't remember much else.
