Dallas is released from trauma unit

Longtime James Brown attorney and former trustee Buddy Dallas has been released from the hospital after sustaining injuries in a Nov. 21 crash.

Dallas, who was in Medical College of Georgia's trauma unit until Nov. 23, is no longer a patient at the hospital, a spokesperson said Friday.

The crash involving a logging truck at an intersection near Dallas' home left him with lacerations on his face and body, Dallas' niece Elizabeth Sisson said.

Dallas was transported by helicopter from the wreck site to MCG, which listed him in serious condition late Nov. 21.

In a brief interview with The Augusta Chronicle, Dallas called the wreck "plain traumatic."

"I'm just thankful to be alive," he said.

Dallas worked closely with Brown for many years and sometimes helped the soul singer during his brushes with the law.

After Brown's death in 2006, Dallas questioned the legitimacy of Brown's marriage to Tom Rae Hynie Brown, while family members said the Thomson lawyer had excessive influence over Brown's estate plans.

Litigation over the handling and disbursement of Brown's assets continues in the South Carolina Supreme Court.
