>>“Don’t go on a roller-coaster.”

Those words hit Abby Crain hard. For the last seven years, the 28-year-old North Carolina native has taken celebrities and other VIPs on tours of Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. Riding roller-coasters is one of her most cherished perks of the job.

“For me, roller-coasters is not just amusement,” she said. “It’s a lifestyle.”

But Crain’s life changed Jan. 22 when the car she was driving was hit almost head-on by another vehicle at the intersection of Cerritos Avenue and Brookhurst Street, barely two blocks from her Anaheim home.

She was rushed to the emergency room with broken bones throughout her body — in her leg, shoulder, chest, back and knee.

In addition to the fractures, there was damage to her left and right internal carotid arteries, which supply the brain with oxygenated blood. They branch off from a main artery in the neck.

She was told to stay off roller-coasters until the arteries were fixed.<<

>>Crain says she’ll miss the big Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opening May 31 at Disneyland, but she plans to check it out when she returns to work next month.

And she’ll be able to ride roller-coasters once again in October. Crain says when she finally gets back on one, she’ll do so with a renewed sense of gratitude and appreciation.

“I’ll take six months of no roller-coasters over no roller-coasters forever,” she said.<<
