A local BMX star is back on two wheels after a serious accident had him off his feet for months

Brett Banasiewicz posted a video on his Facebook page, with the title "Last Night was a Great Night." In it, he is riding a trick bike.

The Washington High School senior was put in a medically induced coma after he suffered a serious head injury in a BMX fall in August.

His injury sparked a change of rules for several major BMX competitions around the country, requiring riders to wear certified helmets.
