Even then he was determined to help find a cure for paralysis. In 1990 he was in a race car accident that resulted in his own paralysis. Instead of letting it destroy him, he rose up and started the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. This foundation works to support those who suffer from paralysis and other spinal cord injuries.
