CRISP COUNTY, GA (WALB) - It is a very Happy Valentine's Day for one Crisp County family after a firefighter severely injured during a wreck comes home for the first time since his injury.

47-year-old Tommy Hauesler is back home after surviving the accident November 22nd. The fire truck he was driving overturned after colliding with an 18-wheeler on Rockhouse Road.
