(WCTV) – An FSU student survived a motorcycle wreck – and a traumatic brain injury – and this weekend he will reach another milestone. James Durham will walk across the stage to receive his college diploma. He says he’s literally been to heaven and back to get there. “She t-boned me and I remember the impact.

I remember flying off my bike and hitting the pole,” Durham said as he described the crash. Durham – who lived in San Antonio, Texas at the time – was riding his motorcycle home that night in September 2011 when a car without its blinker on – turned left – right into him. “No one expected me to wake up. Even the doctors told my family within 24 hours there’s nothing that medicine or doctors can do. You just need to pray,” Durham said. CONTINUE
