The information regarding a settlement for injury is there.
The very fact of prior injury can and could have contributed to what occurred.
Whether or not he had recent surgery is still open. But the site does say more information is forthcoming.
UPDATE: More information has serviced, and a story will be released at 6 PM EST Wednesday that blows the Freddie Gray settlement/surgery/car accident story WIDE open
So I am going to go out on a limb here and speculate that the surgery has also been confirmed.
But we will see.
But why you would think a parent would be truthful is beyond me.
