"Alex has not let go of it since," said the 18-year-old's mother, Terri Taylor.

The crash left Alex with a serious brain injury, and he spent days fighting for his life.

"I just keep trying to remind myself of the little bits of light through all this darkness," Taylor said.

Although Taylor wishes she could go back in time and change what happened that day, she wouldn't take back meeting the Bordage family.

The near-fatal crash sparked an unlikely friendship between the two Fredericton families, who otherwise might never have met.

The families have supported each other in Facebook messages, a visit to the Saint John Regional Hospital, where Alex is staying, and a handwritten note about forgiveness.

"We're going to get through this together," Taylor said.

Over the past two weeks, Taylor has used Facebook posts to keep family and friends updated on Alex's recovery from the Jan. 8 crash. One of the posts asks readers to pray for the teenage driver who hit him.

That's when Hanna decided to reach out to Alex's family.

She sent a Facebook message to Julia, Alex's 16-year-old sister.

Hanna introduced herself and asked how Alex was making out in hospital and apologized over and over again for striking him.

"She didn't mean to hurt him," Taylor said.

The two families decided to finally meet in person.

Hanna, her mom, aunt and grandmother met over the weekend at the hospital in Saint John.

"You don't know what to say," said Joemana Bordage. "You just know you have to be there."

Hanna sat outside while her mother went into Alex's hospital room. She wasn't ready to meet him face to face just yet.

Both mothers understood.

"Because of the accident, Hanna has a special bond with Alex now," Bordage said.

Inside the hospital room

When Alex's mother told him Hanna's mother had come to visit, he reached out and squeezed Bordage's hand.

Weak and unable to speak clearly, he whispered into his own mother's ear.

Police charge Toronto firefighter in collision that seriously injured 11-year-old girl

  Police charge Toronto firefighter in collision that seriously injured 11-year-old girl Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg said in a separate statement that the 22-year veteran remains on active duty. The collision happened on the afternoon of Dec. 16 last year at the corner of Oakwood and Rousemount avenues in Wychwood, which is controlled by a pedestrian crossover. The firefighter was part of a crew heading north on Oakwood to an emergency call nearby. The fire truck's lights and sirens were on at the time, police said.

“It’s hard on the family . We’ re just glad he’s here, working to get back to where he was.” State police concluded their investigation of the accident .

He asked about Hanna.

"He is fighting for his life in a hospital bed and he is concerned about Hanna," said Bordage, who held back tears at the time.

Then Bordage gave him Hanna's rosary beads, which she'd received after her baptism at six months old. He weaved the beads through his fingers.

"That's how we get through things," said Bordage. "We pray."'

A snowy drive home

Hanna, a Grade 11 student at École Sainte-Anne in Fredericton, was driving home from school in a snowstorm.

The newly licensed driver knew the roads were poor. And Hanna's father cautioned her to be careful and drive slowly  — even if it angered other drivers. The teen even turned the music off inside her car to concentrate.

The avid soccer player and straight-A student said she was driving 20 kilometres below the speed limit when she spotted a pedestrian walking on the side of the road. There aren't any sidewalks in that area.

She swerved into the median of Prospect Street — putting herself in danger — while trying to dodge the pedestrian.

But it was too late. Her car hit Alex and sent him into the ditch.

Teen in government care found dead near Rocky Mountain House

  Teen in government care found dead near Rocky Mountain House Alberta's Children Services is investigating the death of a 16-year-old youth who was reported missing in the Rocky Mountain House area one week ago."The death of any young person is heartbreaking and I am incredibly disturbed by this incident," Children's Services Minister Rebecca Schulz said in a written statement Friday.

It was due to Amitabh Bachchan’s near - fatal accident on the film sets. The modified ending had the protagonist recover after his operation. Desai made the changes as he thought that it would have a negative impact on the audience, citing that Amitabh already recovered a near - fatal injury at that time.

The teenage suspect’s name was never made public since he was prosecuted as a juvenile. Dr Miller called Couch a product of 'affluenza,' where his family felt their wealth bought privilege and there was no rational link between behavior and consequences.

She immediately called 911.

When paramedics arrived, Alex's face was swollen and covered in dirt.

There was blood everywhere.

A walk to clear his head

Just before the crash, Alex told his mom he was going for a walk to Tim Hortons.

The Grade 12 Fredericton High School student battles anxiety and depression, so walking was a way to clear his head.

"The last thing I said to him was, 'Be careful and I love you,'" said Taylor.

About 20 minutes later, she could hear sirens about 100 metres from her home.

She didn't think anything of it and drove her daughter, Julia, to work at the north side Dairy Queen.

When she returned home, Taylor noticed her son's black Sorel boots weren't in the doorway.

"I had this sickening feeling consume me."

'Moments away from losing him'

Instinctively, she ran out of the house, in her navy snowflake pyjamas and a pair of white slippers, to the accident scene, where police confirmed it was her son who had been hit.

Alex was immediately sent to the Saint John Regional Hospital. He had surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. The surgery lasted just over an hour but "felt like a million years," Taylor said.

"We were just moments away from losing him."

Taylor is adamant the crash wasn't Hanna's fault. In fact, she believes the teen's quick reaction is what kept Alex from suffering more serious injury.

"She is as damaged emotionally as my son is physically," Taylor said.

Alex will be staying at the hospital for several months and will move to the Stan Cassidy Centre for Rehabilitation in Fredericton after that.

Taylor and Bordage have been texting and talking over the phone — especially on the bad days. They share jokes, laugh and cry together.

"We'll forever be family now," Taylor said.

Alex has broken bones on the right side of his skull and his maxillary sinuses are shattered. He is relearning how to walk and eat on his own. The right side of his face is paralyzed.

In the future, Alex could struggle to walk, talk — he could even lose his memory and cognitive ability. Doctors still don't know whether he'll be the same person he was before the crash.

But he did manage to write his first sentence this week:

"I'll always forgive."
