Teen Making Remarkable Recovery After Being Hit by Alleged Impaired Driver


(FOX 31) – The family of an 18-year-old Brighton man says he’s made a miraculous recovery after being hit and dragged by an alleged drugged driver in September.

Adam Butler suffered massive internal injuries as well as a traumatic brain injury — but he tells FOX31 he expects to make a full recovery.

On Saturday, his family attended a fundraiser for him at In the Zone Sports Bar and Grill in Golden. There was standing room only at the poker fundraiser and silent auction.

“I don’t think anybody who treated him initially, anybody who saw him initially, would have bet money that this is where we’re at,” said Adam’s mother, Audra Butler. CONTINUE
