Como resident Tanner Gilbreath, 24, was critically injured in a vehicle accident in Como on April 22, 2017. The accident resulted in a broken neck and partial paralysis for Gilbreath. He required emergency surgery on his spine. According to his doctor in Tyler, he will require months of therapy to regain the use of his arms and legs. Because the driver of the vehicle did not have insurance, his family will bear the cost and provide his medical care at home.
