CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It happened so fast that Margaret Hardaway had no chance to get out of the way.

Now she faces a long, painful recovery after being thrown into the air when a car jumped a curb during a crash.

Hardaway was at the corner of East 260th Street and Euclid Avenue, when a car, which apparently lost its brakes, came careening down Richmond Road hill, ran a red light, and smashed into a small truck.

The impact sent the cars over the curb into Hardaway who was knocked off her feet into the windshield of another car before landing on the ground of a parking lot.

Attorney Tom Merriman is representing Hardaway and is working on finding out why the brakes on the car failed, his main concern now, however, is Hardaway’s health.

"It’s a miracle she survived this, she has multiple fractures in both legs, 4 fractures in her hips, a fractured clavicle and a punctured bladder.

“It’s horrible," said Merriman.

Merriman said Hardaway has no health insurance and will struggle to make ends meet as she will not be back at work anytime soon.

“She has no memory of this crash, Margaret was just going to work, she had just gotten off a bus and was standing on a corner just minding her own business and you see this happen,” Merriman said.
