Canadian Janelle Morrison continues to recover after being seriously injured in a head-on collision last month.
Morrison was struck head-on by a minivan that crossed the centre line on Nov. 21 while driving from Penticton to Calgary. The accident took place near Revelstoke and left the athlete with multiple fractures to her arms, legs, ribs and pelvis. She also suffered internal organ damage. Morrison had been heading to a spin-a-thon fundraiser in Calgary.
“I was stoked,” writes Morrison in her blog of the fundraiser. “But, I will be honest in that I felt some strong intuitive waves that morning. I did not feel comfortable driving that day. For someone who hops in their car and drives to the States at the drop of a hat, this was abnormal for me. But something was wrong. I actually made a few phone calls in Kelowna and said I may come home and drive another day, but after a cup of coffee and a snack I ceased to follow my intuition and just set out towards what I had planned for the day. Had I only known.”
