Paralyzed Waco firefighter can drive again

Waco firefighter Garth Goodwin was paralyzed in May, but five months later he's starting to regain his independence.
Goodwin started to drive again this week with the help of a special truck with hand controls installed.
In mid-May, Goodwin, a veteran at the Waco Fire Department, was paralyzed from the waist down after falling from a billboard in an off-duty work accident.
He's now bound to a wheelchair.
The community rallied behind Goodwin and his family in the months after his accident.
There's currently a house being built for them paid for entirely through donations.
