Francesville Woman Injured after being Hit by Car

A Francesville resident was injured last week after she was accidentally hit by a car.

Francesville Town Marshal, Jose Miramontes, told WKVI that Sandra Waibel was walking on James Street last Wednesday morning with her mother, sister and two children between Brown and State Street when Ronald Hooker, 80, hit her with his pick-up. Hooker said he did not see them. Waibel told emergency responders that she had a head injury and was pregnant. After examining the situation, she was airlifted from the scene to South Bend Memorial Hospital.

Waibel reportedly continues to recuperate from the accident and is home from the hospital.
