Avryn Strong: Bend Boy Gets Police Escort to School After Surviving Car Wreck

Five months ago, the parents of 10-year-old Avryn Hayes were worried about him surviving a near-fatal accident on the parkway on his way to school, but today, the City of Bend Police Department, including the officer who helped save Avryn’s life after the accident, celebrated Hayes’ recovery with a police escort to Avryn’s school at Silver Rail Elementary.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan was there to capture Hayes’ first day of 5th grade.
