Sean Carter was a college student putting himself through school in Wichita Falls, Texas, when he was in a serious car accident.
He was riding with a friend who had been drinking, and sustained a traumatic brain injury in the crash.
Today, Sean is unable to walk and speaks only with the aid of a computer. At StoryCorps he interviewed his mother, Jenny Carter, who is his full-time caretaker.
