A friend and I were at the scene on Sat. and aided the injured women. We tried to comfort her and to alert traffic to the accident. We left the scene knowing only of the evident injuries(her leg) WE agonized since then about her condition and the circumstances of the accident. Most of all does anybody know how she is? We have tried contacting authorities and they have either been unable or unwilling to tell us. Please someone,anyone ,let us know. Let her family know she is in our prayers and thoughts.

I heard some unfortunate news. It seems that, at the hospital, she was told that they would have to amputate her legs, and at hearing this she had a heart attack...
a tragedy indeed for a 91 year old woman

Iremember hearing about this when it happened. Heartbreaking!
I heard the poor lady was waking to get her mail as she had for many years.
I cannot imagine how the two Red Hook School students could have not seen her on a strait road in a 40 mi hr zone.
I also wonder if either of these students were taking ADHD drugs that schools readily suggest be prescribed. How do schools handle students on prescription drugs when it comes to them starting to drive? Scary scenero.
Clearly it seems the driver was not paying attention to driving and the impact must have been pretty hard to cause such injury.
