Adrianne Haslet Hit by a Car Monday – Victim of the Boston Marathon Bombings

Boston, MA - Adrianne Haslet, a victim who lost part of her leg at the finish line of the Boston Marathon just a few years ago, was recently hit by a car on Saturday, January 5, 2019.

This professional dancer was devastated when the incident happened, but recently, she’s been getting back to her normal lifestyle, dancing and running on a regular basis. That is, all until she was hit by a car. Haslet was rushed to the hospital Saturday to recover after the incident.

On Sunday night, the victim of the Boston Marathon bombings found herself posting a picture on Instagram wearing a neck brace while lying in a hospital bed. Haslet, also an amputee rights advocate, stated that she’s, “completely broken,” after the incident. Haslet claimed that she was hit by a car on Commonwealth Avenue while crossing the street in a crosswalk. She was immediately thrown into the air by the force of the car, landing on the pavement, and crushing the side of her body. More surgery is expected to come in the upcoming weeks to fix the injuries.

The driver at fault was cited for failing to yield the right of way while a pedestrian was crossing the street in a crosswalk. Police claimed that the rain and time of night may have played a part in the incident.

The crash happened approximately two blocks away from where the Boston Marathon bombs exploded back in 2013.

Haslet had vowed to herself and her loved ones that she would not give up dancing after the bombings. She worked hard for a long time, and a little less than a year after the Boston Marathon bombings, she had performed a rhumba in public.

In addition, Haslet completed the 2016 Boston Marathon. She had been training on a regular basis for this years’ upcoming Boston Marathon when she was struck by the car this past Saturday.

The surgeries that she will undergo have not been decided and released to the public yet. No further information is to be stated.
