Tom Sumner Recovering After Accident



Tom Sumner, writer of "Let The Horses Talk" for the Lewisburg Tribune/Marshall Gazette, was involved in a two vehicle accident on Cornersville Highway, Jan. 23. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center via helicopter with serious injuries.

Shortly after the accident, Sumner began undergoing the first of many surgeries to repair extensive damage done to the lower-right side of his body. He suffered a shattered right hip, ankle and kneecap. His hip had to be reconstructed and due to his injuries and surgeries, he has been told not to walk on his leg for three months. In addition, Sumner also had a plate put in his left wrist and is preparing for extensive physical therapy to rehabilitate his body from the many injuries he suffered. He has undergone a total of six surgeries.

Sumner continues to recover and is very appreciative of the many cards and gifts he has received. If you would like to send Tom Sumner a note of encouragement or stop by for a visit, his mailing address is 1040 Yell Road, Lewisburg TN 37091.
