Dorothy Hammond, 74, of Port Allegany was seriously injured in this accident on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 near the Burtville cut, when she lost control of her car and was hit by another vehicle broadside.
Dorothy is Mike Hammond's mom. Mike is the manager of the fruit and feed section of Erway's Market in Coudersport.
Mike reported Saturday that his mom is improving. She suffered a punctured lung, broken ribs, and other injuries in the crash.
She was first taken to Charles Cole Hospital and then moved last week to UPMC Hospital in Pittsburgh. Mike says she is on a ventilator, but doctors there say they hope to be able to take it out soon.
He thanks many people for praying for his mom and asks for continued prayer. Dorothy Hammond's address is UPMC-Presbys, Room 4G-28-Bed 8, 200 Lothrop Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213-2536.
