South Georgia representative recovering after an October crash

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One south Georgia state representative is missing from the Georgia General Assembly session.  Albany Democrat Carol Fullerton, who represents District 153, is still recovering after an October car crash.     

She suffered serious back and leg injuries when she crashed in Butts County on her way home from state business.     

Fullerton says she's getting stronger each day, but her doctors don't want her to return to the capitol just yet.  

"Staying busy with my computer and on the phone, but there is nothing like being there; it's very exciting the first week especially," said Rep. Carol Fullerton.     

Fullerton hopes to get back to work in Atlanta next month. In the meantime, she says an aide is keeping her up to date on what's happening, and she says she could make it up for a day if she needed to take a major vote.
