Back in Class

After a long recovery, the Lufkin high school student who was in a serious car accident after a ball game is now back in class.

Coming home from a panther football game in Waco, 17-year-old Chad Cooper and two other friends were involved in a car accident. Cooper was sent to a Tyler hospital where he spent his birthday and Christmas.

Doctors said he had a long road a head of him. He was supposed to have about six weeks of rehabilitation for brain injuries. He stayed less than a couple of weeks and now Cooper is back in class.
