Update on Woman Involved in Head-on Collision in Hesperia

HESPERIA-( A severely injured woman was airlifted following a June 25, 2015 head on traffic collision with a commercial truck in the area of Mariposa Road and Live Oak Street in Hesperia.  The woman, identified as Leonicia (Leo) McGriff, 25, was extricated from her vehicle then subsequently Leonicia-#6-web (1)airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

McGriff, an Azusa Pacific Graduate and current Social Worker, suffered from two broken legs, broken ribs and bleeding in the brain.

According to family and friends of McGriff, she is now opening her eyes, moving her toes and hands and at times saying a few words. Her recovery is expected to be long due to the brain injury, but her MRI scans are showing decreased bleeding and she is now breathing on her own.

Although some days she will not speak or move, every movement and sound to her loved ones is a sign of her fighting her injuries and a reason to be grateful.

At this time doctors treating McGriff, do not know if her recovery will take months or even years or if she will ever fully recover. The family of McGriff have set up a go fund me account to assist with the costs associated with her hospitalization and recovery.
