One September day in 1999, as Stephanie Wall traveled down a Colorado
highway to begin her freshman year at a university in Denver, her life took
a dramatic detour. A passing car swerved into her lane, forcing her off the
freeway. Her SUV rolled over, leaving Wall with severe injuries.
Two months later, upon release from the intensive care unit of a Denver
hospital, she returned home to San Diego to begin the painful process of physical
rehabilitation and multiple surgeries. Her body was on the way to recovery,
but she was now terrified to drive.
