Usually, the police will issue an update if the victim dies. This has not happened in this case.

I find it very upsetting with this whole situation. A woman is struck by a truck going in the wrong way, she is pinned under the truck, airlifted and then seems to disappear off the face of the earth. No newspaper article, tv media, any updates. Rumor has it she is fine but she also died. Any information?

I just called the police information line again, and no news is good news.

I received confirmation from 2 different sources that she did NOT make it. Very sad!
