A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper injured nearly two years ago in a crash on I-40 will have to undergo another surgery.

We've been following Lowell Russell since the crash in March 2012. He was in his cruiser when a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into his car. The crash nearly killed him.

Russell announced he will have another spinal surgery in a couple weeks. It's the latest step in a long road to recovery. He says he has good days and bad days.

He says he has no animosity against the truck driver and has forgiven him.
