Dustin was employed in the family business, DJ Glass, in Green River, Wyoming after graduating from high school. He was injured on August 26, 2010, when he was 26 years old. Dustin was driving the business van in nearby Rock Springs when a tire blew out and sent his van into a cable that lined the median. The van flipped and he was flung from the driver’s side window.
Dustin broke his back, sternum, elbow and four ribs, and his lungs collapsed; he had bleeding to the brain and injured his spine at T5, and was left paralyzed from the chest down. Dustin was implanted in Jan 2013 and is still undergoing the same therapy the three before him did. Dustin relocated to Louisville, KY to participate in the epidural stimulation program. He owns a number of homes in the Green River area, leasing and managing them for a living.
