Woman Pedestrian Loses Her Leg in Chicago Car Crash

Joanne McGee, 58, was standing at a bus stop last Wednesday when she a Buick LeSabre drove onto the sidewalk and ran into her. In addition to other injuries that she sustained in the Chicago car crash, she broke one leg and the other had to be amputated.

Police arrested the Buick’s driver, 21-year-old Tyreesha Fraley, on Friday. She had fled from her vehicle at the crash site and is now charged with a number of offenses, including failure to render aid to the injured, driving without a license, and failure to report an accident involving injury.
