Anne Dutton was involved in a serious accident on Sept. 22 when she was struck by a taxi cab while walking across a busy intersection in Baltimore, Maryland. The 24-year-old Iowa native, an avid runner, suffered multiple injuries and underwent 9-10 hours of surgery as a result of the accident. This is a story about her triumphant recovery.
Her pelvis was fractured in three different places and her left arm also suffered multiple fractures. Doctors have estimated a timetable of at least three months before she can walk normally again. Thanks to her background in running, Anne Dutton considers herself lucky.
