West Fork High senior Lindsey Peterson was involved in a "freak accident" that has forced her to miss the next six weeks of sports which means that her high school basketball years are over. On Jan. 3, eCanadaNow reported that Peterson was hurt when she slipped and fell while posing for photos with her teammates. She hit her head on a locker room bench and her injuries were extensive.

"The accident led to a serious head injury with lacerations that required nearly 100 stitches and fractures that necessitated the insertion of metal plates... She will most likely have to undergo plastic surgery and treatment for nerve damage," eCanadaNow reports.

West Fork High senior Lindsey Peterson has been placed on the disabled list and will not be able to close out the basketball season with the rest of her team. A standout on the team, Peterson will be greatly missed -- but many are simply hoping that she is able to make a full recovery and get back to doing what she loves -- she can always play basketball in college.

Peterson is also a member of the school's volleyball team but it's unclear whether or not she will be well enough to play when the season starts up.

West Fork High senior Lindsey Peterson has a long road of recovery ahead of her but she has a lot of support from her family, friends, and people around the country who don't even know her.
