A Brave and Inspiring Woman
Vicky Lyons was born on April 17, 1976, in Big Spring, Texas. When she was four years old, she was playing outside in a parking lot when she was hit by a truck. The accident left her with severe head and eye injuries, and she spent three weeks in a coma. She had to relearn how to walk and talk, and she suffered from neurological impairments for the rest of her life.
Her mother, Crystal Lyons, was determined to find the driver who hit her daughter and fled the scene. She used shoe polish and paper to make tire impressions from the trucks in the parking lot, and contacted a forensic tire expert named Pete McDonald, who helped her identify the vehicle. The driver turned out to be an employee of the newspaper where Crystal worked, and he confessed to the crime. He was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to pay $50,000 in restitution.
Vicky Lyons did not let her injuries stop her from pursuing her dreams. She graduated from high school and college, and became a professional wrestler. She trained at the Highspots Wrestling School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and performed under the name Vicky Vette. She was known for her strength, agility, and charisma in the ring.
