Officers buy hit-and-run victim a new wheelchair to aid her recovery
HAMMOND -- Jean Baikauskas was taking her wheelchair across the street in Hammond, Indiana last September when a white Impala ran through a light and slammed into her. At the time, Jean was using a wheelchair as she recovered from a leg injury. She was just beginning to walk again thanks to physical therapy, she says, when the hit-and-run accident dealt a blow to her recovery.
