This is a story about a very special man. Badly injured when struck by a truck while bicycling, he overcame paralysis, forgave the man who hit him and now they’re friends! And, it gets better!
Dean Otto of Charlotte, North Carolina, was riding his bike one humid morning in September 2016 when the unimaginable occurred: The husband, father and marathoner was struck by a truck, ABC News reported. His spine was fractured. His pelvis, tailbone and ribs were broken. And he could not feel his legs.
