The story behind the flatheaded man

Yes, it is real. And yes, I do have the story about how it happened, courtesy of a guy who met him:
I met this guy once at the hospital, we had a long talk because I was there for a head injury and I was all bandaged up. He was a really nice guy but his life story should be a movie. His father left him and his mom when he was 6, his mother passed away when he was 12 from cancer. He was just a teenager when he was in a car accident, drunk driver in a pickup truck. His injuries were a result of the accident, he had to learn to walk again, learn to speak, he said eating was the hardest thing to learn again. His memories are really weird, sometimes he'll say something that you know he didn't do, its almost like he can't tell which of his memories are really his. When he was talking to me he claimed he was port of the mercury program for Nasa at one time, poor guy is really confused.
And here's the police report where they describe his unique physical features:
