ANDERSON — Nearly a month after her father was struck by an SUV while riding a motorcycle, his daughter says he is still receiving care for his injuries.
Tasha Gilbert, of Anderson, said her father was released from the hospital into a rehabilitation facility last week.
“He still has bleeding in his brain, but they did end up taking the ventilator out.”
Anderson police say Corena Swain was intoxicated and driving an SUV when she struck Lawrence “Kelly” Jones, 47, and his passenger, Lisa Widener, 51, at 11:05 p.m. June 10, Anderson police said.
Swain, 49, is charged with a Level 5 felony causing serious bodily injury when operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
A portable Breathalyzer test showed Swain’s blood alcohol content was 0.205% — more than twice the legal limit — shortly after the accident. She was uninjured.
“It feels like the number of motorcycle accidents is rising,” Gilbert
