Sheri Bruster wins volunteer of the year award after horrific accident more than 14 years ago

first_imgSheri Bruster winner of Impact Center volunteer award. by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — Sheri (Baker) Bruster’s life was changed forever on Dec. 20, 2001. She and her father, Frank Baker, were just north of Wellington on their way home from Christmas shopping in Wichita, when they were hit by a drunk driver.As a result, Bruster has been named the Kansas DUI Impact Center Volunteer of the year for 2015.For several years, Bruster has volunteered at the Kansas DUI Impact Center in Wichita. There are also two victim presentation panels held in Wellington every year for which she speaks.Bruster tells the story of that fateful night in which she lost her father, as well as the drunk driver, who lost his life in a horrific two-car collision, north of Wellington on U.S. 81.“I present my story to a panel of court ordered offenders,” Bruster said. “I speak about once a month, and it’s usually people under age 21 who have been charged with minor in possession or minor in consumption.”Bruster was presented the award by staff at the center on Sunday.Bruster said she doesn’t remember the night of the collision or even Christmas shopping at the time. Those memories have been blocked out. But it was an evening that changed her life.The evening started normally enough. Bruster, who was born and raised, graduated from Wellington High School in 1998 and her father, a supervisor for the City of Wellington wastewater treatment plant for many years, were on their way home, southbound on U.S. 81 when this drunk driver was driving erratically all over the road going north.“We were traveling south bound, and my dad was driving,” Bruster said. “This drunk driver crossed the center line and hit us head on.”He was 32 years old, and lived in Oklahoma. He died at the scene.“He had been at the bar drinking, and was kicked out of bar we were told,” Bruster said. “He left the bar, got on the highway and hit our car. His blood alcohol content was .30, and his car was torn into three pieces. He was ejected from his car and broke his neck.”Both Frank and Sheri were taken to St. Francis by Eagle Med. Her father lived for 32 hours, but died on Dec. 22 due to severe injuries he sustained in the accident.“I spent six weeks in the burn trauma unit but I wasn’t burned, the surgical ICU was closed for remodeling,” Bruster said. “After six weeks, I was moved to a regular room, where I stayed two more weeks.”She suffered from a broken left foot with bones coming out of the foot, two broken wrists, a closed head injury, which needed stitches, and a broken and dislocated right pelvis, which was broken in three places, and required a plate and screws.“I have osteoarthrosis and will have to have hip replacement someday,” Bruster said. “My left hip still hurts. I could have surgery on it, but I try to deal with it as much as I can.”After being in the hospital for eight weeks, she was released to come home, and her mother, Debbie Baker, took care of her, with the help of other family members.“My mom rented a hospital bed, lift, wheel chair, everything that you would need in a hospital,” Bruster said. “The day I was sent home, there were no instructions, and my mom is not a trained medical professional. My cousin who is a CNA came over everyday, and my aunt who is a nurse, came over on her days off to help.”Bruster’s younger brother, who was 19 at the time and still living at home, also helped take care of her when he wasn’t working, as well as an older brother who lived on his own.About a month later, Bruster began physical and occupational therapy at Sumner Regional Medical Center. She continued physical therapy for about nine months.“I had to relearn how to walk,” Bruster said. “It had been almost 3 1/2 months since I had walked, and I had no muscles left.”At the time of the accident, Sheri and Chris Bruster were engaged, and had already planned a July wedding.“It was my goal to be able to walk down the aisle at my wedding without assistance,” Bruster said. “We kept our July wedding date.”Chris and Sheri Bruster will celebrate 14 years of marriage this July, and have two children, a son, Ayden, 9; and a daughter, Gates, 5. Nine years ago, Debbie Baker remarried to Richard Wilson, but kept the last name Baker.The Kansas DUI Impact Center offers various services to victims of drunk driving accidents, such as court accompaniment, DUI case coordination, victim impact statements, transportation, child care, support group, crime victims fund compensation application, crisis management, sober drivers program, and court watch.Chris is an electrical engineer, and they also own Home Plus, a care home for the elderly in Wichita. They have staff who provide needs for all of the residents. Bruster has a college degree in license of master social work, and recently earned her nurse aide and med aide, so that now she can help the staff pass medication to the residents.“Now you can be charged for being under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, it’s all impaired driving,” Bruster said.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.

I love a happy ending. I remember when this accident happened, and how sad I was for them. Thank you for writing this, Amber. Report Reply 0 replies · active 216 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down Chris Bruster · 216 weeks ago Ron Holt, the Assistant Manager for Sedgwick County, was the keynote speaker at the gala and presented some very interesting data regarding the financial cost to the city, county and state of DUI related crashes. The cost of Law Enforcement, Paramedics, Fire Department and courts is staggering. It still pales in comparison the cost the families of the victims and offenders experience. This cost adds to the loss and suffering the victims, offenders and families face. It can all be avoided. The bottom line is, if you drink, don’t drive and if you drive, don’t drink. You owe it to yourself, your families and the rest of human kind.
