Adrianne Haslet shared a photo on Instagram showing herself lying in a hospital bed Sunday after being hit Saturday while crossing a street in Boston.
“Struck by a car on Commonwealth Avenue, while on a crosswalk,” the caption read. “Thrown into the air and landed, crushing the left side of my body. Yesterday. I’m completely broken. More surgery to come.”
The Boston Globe reports that the driver of the car told police he had not seen Haslet crossing the street because it was raining and she was wearing dark clothing.
Haslet was one of many bystanders who were wounded in the 2013 bombings, which killed three people and wounded at least 264 others.
Though her left leg was amputated below the knee, Haslet was determined to dance again ― and she did.
Just 200 days after the attack, Haslet danced the rumba with a prosthetic lower leg during the TED Talk of MIT Media Lab director Hugh Herr.
Haslet had met Herr, a double amputee who specializes in bionics, while recovering in the hospital after the bombing.
Soon after in 2016, Haslet joined 21 other survivors and competed in the annual race.
