Last Tuesday, Shannon Jacaway had just gotten off her shift from the Ramada, when she entered the crosswalk on Great Basin Boulevard and was struck by a vehicle.
She was transported to William Bee Ririe but due to her extensive injuries had to be life-flighted to the University of Utah Medical Center.
She suffered a broken leg, broken arm, shattered hips and a stroke. She has since undergone several surgeries, and it is reported that her recovery is going to be several months long.
Shannon is the mother of 4 children, and a grandmother of one child.
A go fund me account has been set up to assist her and her family. If you would like to help, go to gofundme.com and search by Shannon’s Medical Fund.
