BOSTON, MA. (THECOUNT) — Adrianne Haslet, the dancer who lost a leg in the Boston Marathon bombing, was hit by a car Saturday evening in Boston.
Haslet was on foot around 7:15 p.m. Saturday on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston when she was struck by a vehicle.
The driver remained on the scene and cooperated with police. He was cited for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
The driver told police he never saw Haslet in the rain.
Haslet took to Instagram to update her followers on the incident:
“Struck by a car on Commonwealth Avenue, while on a crosswalk,” Haslet revealed on Instagram. “Thrown into the air and landed, crushing the left side of my body.” source
The Instagram photo shows her wearing a neck brace in a hospital bed. “I’m completely broken,” writes Haslet, who lost her left leg in the bombing. “More surgery to come.”
Haslet was one of 17 people who lost a limb in the 2013 bombing. She triumphantly ran the 2016 race with a prosthetic limb and also competed on a memorable season of Dancing With the Stars.
