DEWITT TWP., Mich (WLNS) – We have an update today on the condition of a woman who was injured last month by a hit-and-run driver while she was running.
30-year-old Amy Norris, an emergency room nurse at Sparrow, had two skull fractures, two broken vertebrae in her back, a broken pelvis and hip, a broken tibia and a broken fibula in her right leg.
Today her husband tells 6 News the woman is recovering at home. “We are home as of today. She had been slated to do a month of in patient rehab, but did so well her first couple days, that they decided there was nothing she could do there, that she couldn’t do at home,” said Christopher Norris. “She will still have plenty of in-home rehab followed by out-patient over the next several months, and she cannot walk for around two more months. She is wheelchair-bound for now, until she works her way up to a walker and then crutches. She has wow’ed every doctor, nurse and physical therapist she has encountered. They cannot believe how well she is doing considering her injuries.”
The search continues for the driver of the vehicle that hit Amy Norris August 16 on Airport Road between Howe and Cutler Roads. It is believed the vehicle has damage to the right front and passenger side.
If you have any information you are urged to contact the DeWitt Township Police at 517-669-6578.
