Woodstock hit-and-run victim home

After months of medical struggles, Woodstock hit-and-run victim Emily Bowman returned home Thursday. Bowman, who attended Kennesaw State University, was critically injured by a suspected drunken driver while walking with a friend in Athens on Feb. 16.

The 20-year-old spent months being treated for severe brain injuries at the Shepherd Center and at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. An Atlanta-based nonprofit, Sunshine on a Ranney Day, arranged for extensive renovations to her home to facilitate care, including building a wheelchair-accessible ramp and converting a dining room and den into accessible bedrooms for Emily and her mother.

The noprofit’s founder, Holly Ranney, says Bowman must now use a wheelchair and will require round-the-clock care.
