A Newcastle teen reached a major milestone in his recovery since he nearly died in a car crash in 2017. 

Caleb Freeman and his brother were in a car that hydro-planed, flipped and then was hit by a semi. 

After the crash, Caleb had a less than five percent chance of survival. 

On Tuesday, Caleb finished his first cross-country race since the accident. He finished the 3.1 mile race in 51 minutes and 44 seconds.
