Emileigh Gulrud of Virginia Beach is in the hospital recovering from injuries she sustained at the bus stop on October 2, 2013. A Ford Explorer ran a stop sign at the intersection of Aragona and Kellum, colliding with a Toyota Tacoma and pushing the Tacoma onto Emileigh. She is currently in intense pain as she awaits surgery to repair a broken shoulder. Emileigh’s parents were too relieved that their daughter is alive to be angry at the driver. The Explorer driver, whose name was not immediately available, was charged with reckless driving.
