About three weeks ago in Tacoma, a young woman who police say was left behind after a motorcycle crash was rallied by her friends today. For Jessica Anderson, 22, they personally held lot of Saturday car washes for a lot of good causes in Puyallup. Anderson spent more than couple of weeks in a coma after the crash, and still has a long, costly recovery ahead.
In the early morning hours of July 27, Anderson was riding on a motorcycle skippered by a friend when it crashed in Tacoma, police said. Jessica was seriously hurt in the crash, but the friend got back on the motorcycle and sped away, leaving her behind, investigators said.
Dale Anderson, Jessica’s dad said that for somebody to physically walk away, drive away in this case, and leave another human being there. I struggle with that. Her daughter, he said has just came out of a coma four days ago. There’s a lot of discomfort because there are lots of broken things, he said. But she’s improving each day and seeing wonderful strides, he added.
For her fast recovery, her friends are helping by washing cars to raise funds. Friends were grateful to a huge social media campaign, Saturday’s car wash was a massive success. Within the first half hour, the fund raisers got $200. Even people who never met Jessica rolled up.
