The son of longtime Fayetteville resident John Paul Bradbury and former resident Katrina Bradbury, Trey was injured Nov. 9 in the Columbus area when he fell out of a trackhoe and into a boring pit. He suffered severe back injuries that resulted in paralysis below his waist, said friend Jerry Hudgins. The boring pit was about 15 feet deep, Hudgins said, and Bradbury landed on the railroad tracks at the bottom of the pit.
