Banasiewicz recovering from bad accident in Virginia

There is some encouraging news Wednesday night about local BMX Star Brett Banasiewicz, whose condition continues to improve after a bad accident last week while practicing in Virginia.

The Washington High School Senior suffered a serious head injury from the fall and remains hospitalized.

But his Mom, Lisa, said in a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon that Brett has been slowly coming off sedation, and doctors say he should be waking up in the next few days. The 17-year-old was also removed from a ventilator Wednesday, and is now completely breathing on his own.

Brett will stay in Virginia for at least two to three more weeks as he continues to recover.
