Va. Couple Still Recovering From Cookeville Crash

The Winchester Star newspaper in Virginia says a couple, seriously injured in a wreck on I-40 in Cookeville last year will never fully recover, but that they have made amazing progress. Larry and Dorothy Schrock say they don't remember the accident, which also killed their friend, 71-year-old Donald Meese. They also say they don't remember the month they spent in comas, or the month they spent in a Tennessee rehabilitation clinic after they woke up. And Dorothy Schrock says they don't really want to. Rebecca Galyean, a Cookeville resident, has pleaded not guilty in Putnam County Criminal Court to charges of vehicular homicide, two counts of vehicular assault, and driving while intoxicated. Dorothy Schrock says that she doesn't hate Galyean but believes that the woman should face the consequences of her actions.
