After a major accident on Hwy. 67 N. Tuesday morning severely injured former Stephenville ISD life skills teacher Sabrina Carter, she is slowly beginning the long road to recovery. 

The accident sent two others to Texas Health Hospital Stephenville and Carter was taken by air ambulance to Texas Health in Fort Worth.

Carter’s husband, Neely, said she will undergo surgery on her arm and hip Thursday and anticipates she will continue her stay in the hospital for approximately one week.

Close family friend, Brianna Hodges said the Carters are extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support from community members and churches. 

“She’s going to be okay, but there is definitely going to be a lengthy recovery,” Hodges said. “Sabrina and Neely are known for supporting people who have challenges of their own and so now it’s time for us to take care of her through her challenges.”

Carter taught life skills at SISD and coordinated the first ever Special Olympics for students in Erath County. According to SISD Superintendent Matt Underwood, she recently accepted a position in Dublin at the Special Education Coop working with smaller schools in the area.

“We feel as a school district that Sabrina is a special person and has a heart for kids,” Underwood said. “And we have a heart for her through this tragedy.”
