Ryan Gravelle looked like a casualty from a war movie when he knocked on friend’s door in the darkest hour before dawn. The 19-year-old’s face and forearms were bloody, his hair was matted with mud and blood. He was dazed and barely coherent. He had just walked half a mile from a car crash with a broken neck, multiple facial fractures, a huge gash on the back of his head and a potentially fatal hematoma swelling in his brain.
