Sherwood Forrest Youth Struck by Car

13 year old Gregory Keys is prepared for transport to BHM-GT

Lowndes County emergency crews raced to Spivey Rd just outside of Sherwood Forrest late Friday night after a panicked caller told E-911 that she had just struck a man with her car. Emma Jean Hutchinson, 85, was driving east on Spivey Rd shortly after 9:00pm Friday night when she said she was temprorarily blinded by the bright lights of an oncoming car. Hutchinson told Lowndes County deputies that at the same time she heard a large “thud” and the front windshield of her Toyota sedan shattered almost instantly.
When the frightened driver emerged from her vehicle, she was shocked to discover 13 year old Gregory Keys face down on the roadway , laying in a pool of blood. Keys was temporarily knocked unconscious by the impact after being thrown nearly 15 feet. [It appeared from the damage to the Toyota that Keys was walking closer to the middle of the roadway than to the shoulder. The initial point of impact appeared to be the drivers side bumper. The general consensus on scene was that the other car turned on its’ brights when they saw Keys in the road mere second before Hutchinson made contact-CK] Lowndes County Deputies were the first to reach Keys as he lay in the boulevard writhing in pain. Keys was suffering from a laceration to his face and his right leg clearly had a severe break. Deputies initially called in the victim as non-responsive, but several people on scene from the Sherwood Forrest neighborhood told deputies that Keys was Autistic and didn’t talk. District 2 Volunteers arrived on scene minutes later and began to stabilize the young man. The decision was made on scene after a brief evaluation to call in a Medi-Vac rescue helicopter and Keys was transported via BMH-GT ambulance to a rendevous with the chopper on Hwy 45. He was brought to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo for treatment.
Keys mother Phyllis told The Packet Wednesday that her son has not been discharged from the hospital yet and he suffered a broken nose, leg and some facial lacerations to deal with.
“His face has done a lot of healing even since Saturday when they did his leg surgery. He has a rod and pins in his leg now. Since he is so young, they don’t do a cast, they did a rod and pins. While he was still sedated, they worked on his face, and the gash in his elbow. He’s looking a lot better already. They expect he will be in physical therapy, and the leg will take about three months to heal. This is the only surgery they think for now (on his leg and face, etc.) but might have to have oral surgery for his two front teeth, one is chipped, will probably have to have root canals,” the mother of Gregory Keys said.
The mother of the Columbus Middle School 8th grader went on to praise her son’s good fortune in the accident: “I’m just glad that, him being a larger child, that seemed to work in his favor, he did bounce off her windshield, he shattered her windshield, if he had been a smaller child, he might have been killed. I think the paramedics did a good job. They saw blood, and thought he was a lot worse, but they gave him the best care. My husband (Kenny) wanted to thank the paramedics and the people that came to his aid from the sheriffs department and all the people that responded to the accident so quickly.
[This is the second such accident where a youth has been struck by a car in Lowndes County in the past month. On July 18th of this year, seven-year old Malik Wallace died tragically when he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle near his home on E. Cherry St. in East Columbus. This is a sad trend that the people of Lowndes County should take notice of and work to end. – JD] 0
