‘Further Along Than I Thought’: Family Hopeful About Recovery for Wichita Boy Hit by Car

(The Wichita Eagle) – Seeing a stovetop pan with the remnants of eggs this December was a blessing to a west Wichita family. To the parents of 11-year-old Nathan Veith, it was a sign their son could one day heal from a traumatic brain injury.

Making eggs had always been a normal part of his routine before he was hit by a car in September. The fifth-grader was riding his bicycle to class at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Schools when he was hit in the crosswalk at Central and Redbarn, about 1.5 miles from home.

He flew in the air before crashing to the ground. The driver was cited for running a red light. CONTINUE
