What started off as an everyday routine morning, would soon take a turn for the worst. Tuesday, June 28, Jimmy Jackson of Bessie would set out on his way to work at around 5:15 that morning, only to never make it to his destination in Thomas, OK. As stated in the collision report provided by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), the one vehicle accident occurred just after 6 am on a county road three miles east of Custer City when 19-year-old Jackson departed State Highway 33 to the right while driving a 1994 Jeep Wrangler. OHP stated the Jeep would strike a culvert and roll an undetermined amount of times, ejecting the driver. Jackson was flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where he was admitted with trunk internal injuries. “I got the call about 6:30 am or so. We think he fell asleep. His Jeep rolled numerous times and threw him out, he wasn’t wearing a seat belt. I guess that was a good thing though because the way the Jeep looked, it would have just crushed him inside. He doesn’t have any recollection of anything yet,” said Jennifer McLain Cameron, Jackson’s mother. Jackson sustained multiple injuries including spinal and brain damage, a collapsed lung and two separate broken areas in his back. “Jimmy is such a good kid, he never got in trouble. He was always wanting to help somebody and wouldn’t hesitate. If a stranger broke down, he would stop and make sure that they were okay. If you told him to do something and he didn’t want to do it, he wouldn’t tell ya, he would just go ahead and do it. He has a heart of gold,” expressed Cameron. Jackson is a member of the 2022 graduating class of Burns Flat-Dill City High School. He completed two years at Western Technology Center in Burns Flat where he studied Diesel Technology. Jackson is a full-time diesel mechanic in Thomas. Along with diesel technology, Jackson has a passion for the fast life with dirt bikes and ATVs. “I just want everyone to keep us in their thoughts and prayers. I’m just hoping that he’ll get feeling in his legs, because he has no movement of his legs yet. If it doesn’t happen he’ll still have a good quality of life. Life goes on... but gosh he’s just too young,” said Cameron.
