Victim of tragic hit-and-run car accident slowly recovering

The 61-year-old victim of a Kalamazoo County traffic accident is slowly recovering from the injuries she suffered during the collision. Even with physical therapy and ongoing care she may face chronic pain for the rest of her life. The car accident that left her injured occurred over a month ago, and her recovery has been slow but promising.

Initially after the accident, she was placed in a medically induced coma to avoid brain injury. She also had metal rods surgically attached to her spine. The victim is able to move with the help of intensive assistance from a physical therapist, but still struggles to walk more than a few yards at a time.

The accident, that left the victim in a nursing home during her recovery, occurred on US-131 on August 6. According to local news reports the alleged hit-and-run driver rear ended her mini-van, causing it to roll over on its side. For the first few days after the accident, it was doubtful if the victim would live. Today, she does not remember the accident or any of the events leading to her hospitalization.

The driver of the vehicle that struck her car has been released from jail without bond, but will be due in court to face two felony charges, which carry a combined sentence of five years in prison, if she is convicted on both counts. The family of the victim has indicated that they are not satisfied that the pending criminal charges are commensurate with the trauma and pain that resulted from the accident, saying that they feel the punishment thus far has been "too lenient."
