Crash victim finally home, months after horror smash
FOUR months after he was critically injured in a car crash that claimed the life of his mate Bailey Sibraa, Josh Harrison is home from hospital.
"Exciting News!" a post on a Facebook page maintained by family members states.
"Joshua is coming home...his mum will no longer have to drive to Brisbane.
"Rehab will continue on the Sunshine Coast with referrals being sent off this week."
The 20-year-old Sippy Downs resident was in a ute travelling on Pacific Blvd on January 6 when it left the road, slamming into a tree.
Mountain Creek resident Mr Sibraa, a passenger, died at the scene while Mr Harrison, also a passenger, received head injuries.
He was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital where he received emergency surgery immediately.
Several operations later, Mr Harrison was still waiting for surgery to replace a missing part of his skull when the Daily last spoke with him in March.
His recovery was slow, his mum Debbie White told the Daily.
The driver of the vehicle, Jett Malcolm Morris, faced court on March 8 and is scheduled to appear again on May 19.
All three occupants of the vehicle were just 19 at the time of the crash.
The Daily understands Mr Harrison is now living at home with his family at Sippy Downs.
