Kentucky deputy paralyzed in line of duty surprised with special Mustang
A set of specialized wheels for a Scott County deputy injured in the line of duty.
Deputy Jaime Morales was shot in September. The shooting left him 90 percent paralyzed.
Our sister station WKYT reports, Morales owns a manual 2016 California Edition 5-speed GT Special Mustang. After the shooting, his father Larry Stroh wanted to find a way to make his son's car more accessible for him.
Stroh found an identical car in Michigan, however, that one was automatic and could be altered with hand controls.
He said he sees the altered car as a way to encourage Morales to continue getting better.
"So by having his car back and having it adapted to where he can drive it, that's kind of putting the carrot in front of the donkey," he said. "It's kind of giving him that bait to keep going and keep driving."
