On August 5, 2014, 25-year-old Kelsey Zionskowski got off of a TriMet bus onto SE McLoughlin Boulevard near SE River Rd. She was on her way home from work at Oregon Health Sciences University, where she is working as a Clinical Student Worker.
Kelsey walked to a crosswalk and was standing waiting to cross McLoughlin. She was struck by a southbound car when it left its lane of travel. Kelsey was seriously injured, with massive trauma to both legs. After being transported by AMR to OHSU, she lost her left leg. Her right leg was severely injured as well. She also suffered other injuries in the crash and will never fully recover. Several surgeries are still in her future.
Kelsey is a mother of a 5 year old son, Santino, and is also a medical student at Portland State University, majoring in Psychology.
