Sally Ann Okuly was killed on her first walk after an accident that left her unable to be mobile for six months.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, in another tragic story of low statistic probability a pregnant woman was recently killed by a falling tree in Queens Park.
In this case, cancer and motorcycle survivor Sally Ann Okuly finally decided to do what most of us take for granted: go for a walk. Unfortunately, the decision took the worst possible turn when she was struck by a car and killed. The car was driven by Amanda Styles-Mays, who crashed into Sally Ann Okuly as she was on her way to her favorite store for a newspaper and cup of coffee. Local police have issued the following statement:
“The investigation revealed that a pedestrian was crossing Opitz Boulevard at the intersection with Montgomery Avenue in a designated crosswalk and with a pedestrian signal indicating to cross. At the same time, the driver, and only occupant, of a 2007 Jeep Wrangler was at the same intersection attempting to make a left hand turn from Montgomery Avenue onto Opitz Boulevard with a solid green light. The driver of the Jeep Wrangler did not yield the right of way and proceeded to turn left, striking the pedestrian. The pedestrian, an adult woman, was transported to an area hospital where she died on Nov. 18 as a result of her injuries sustained during the collision.”
Ms. Styles-Mays was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and reckless driving. A memorial for Sally was placed at the intersection of the incident. It reads, “In loving memory of our friend and neighbor, Sally Ann Okuly.” Sally’s husband Bill talks about his late wife:
“One of her favorite things to do was to walk over across that street to the Wawa gas station. She’s the most giving person ever.”
The romantic Mr. Okuly says his wife of 41 years will not be forgotten:
“Oh yeah, she’ll always be there.”
Sally Ann Okuly was a mother of two, and a member of the Rolling Thunder motorcycle club. The Club is a non-profit for mostly vets and is considered a “motorcycle club.”
