Tempe, Arizona—Kayla Gonzalez, age 18, may have to postpone her first day at Arizona State University for a year while she recovers from an accident that left her severely injured.

On August 15th, the day before the start of her freshman year, Kayla was walking on the sidewalk along University Drive near the First United Methodist Church, when a black BMW swerved onto the sidewalk and struck her. 

Accident investigators with the Tempe Police Department report that the BMW was traveling east on University Drive.  A westbound truck turning into the church parking lot failed to yield.  To avoid striking the truck, the driver of the BMW swerved onto the sidewalk, striking Kayla in the process. 

Kayla, a recent graduate of McClintock High School in Tempe, suffered two broken legs, a severely damaged pelvis and lost a toe.  Thus far, she has undergone five surgeries.  Doctors say it may be a full year before she is sufficiently healed to start classes.

We wish Kayla the best for a full recovery.
