Sole survivor of Taconic crash back home

Bryan Schuler is back home.

The 5-year-old boy whom relatives dubbed "the miracle child" is recovering at home in West Babylon after two months in hospitals. But he has "very severe head injuries" from the wrong-way collision upstate that killed his mother, younger sister, three cousins and three Yonkers men, said his family's private investigator.

"He is going through medical as well as physical therapy treatments and dealing with the medical issues that were caused by this very severe crash and his very severe head trauma and injuries," said Thomas Ruskin, president of the CMP Protective and Investigative Group in Manhattan, which is probing the crash for Bryan's family.

The July 26 accident drew nationwide attention when toxicology tests showed Bryan's mother, Diane Schuler, was drunk and high on marijuana when she drove a minivan full of young children the wrong way for 1.7 miles on the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester County.
