Woman remains hospitalized after July 4th crash

It's been three weeks and Katrina Hewitt still cannot stand up.

- It's been three weeks and Katrina Hewitt still cannot stand up.

"They said I flew about 20 feet," said Katrina Hewitt.

Katrina doesn't remember much from the accident. On the 4th of July she was crossing the street at University and Price around 9:30 p.m. with her 4-year-old daughter when she says a car seemed to come out of nowhere.

"I remember crossing the crosswalk and I was talking with my daughter, and then I remember waking up. My legs weren't in the rights spots they were just. It freaked me out, I looked over and saw my daughter, and her face was bleeding, she was unconscious," said Hewitt.

Her daughter ended up hospitalized too, and as bad as they look her injuries were not as serious as her mothers.

"From what I was told by police, it looks like I pushed her out of the way. Like I kind of protected her," she said.

Now the mother of three cannot work, at the time of the accident she was the sole breadwinner for her family.

"It is hard because now I am stuck in here," said Hewitt.

The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help them out while Katrina recovers at the hospital. She has two broken legs, a cracked hip, and a number of other injuries.

Tempe Police are still investigating the cause of the accident, they say no one was cited at the scene, and the driver was not impaired.
