Newcastle teen critically injured in crash is coming home
Boise, Idaho. – An Oklahoma teenager is cleared to come home after intense recovery at multiple out-of-state hospitals.
Caleb Freeman was critically injured after his vehicle crashed on the way to an OU basketball game back in December.
After spending three months at Craig Hospital Caleb transferred to a rehabilitation facility in Omaha, Nebraska.
After Omaha, Caleb moved to a hospital in Boise, Idaho where he had a major reconstructive surgery to rebuild his left ear which was severed during the crash.
Now, his dad says it’s time to come home.
“We will leave Saturday morning and arrive in OKC at 12:50pm. We would love lots of people there to welcome him,” wrote his dad on Facebook.
It has been 8 months since Caleb was transferred to Colorado.
The family says they are $4k away from their $10k goal for his medical fund. If you would like to donate, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/caleb-freeman-medical-fund.
