A Winnipeg cyclist is one step closer to going home after being moved from a hospital to a rehabilitation and physiotherapy facility.
On Tuesday evening, Janice Naccarato’s family said she had finally been discharged as a hospital patient and was being moved into her next phase of physio and rehab.
“We cannot thank everyone enough for the support,” the Naccarato family said. “Thank you for everything – thoughts, well wishes, and support!”
It’s taken three and a half months for Naccarato to get to this point of her recovery and her family knows it is going to be a long road ahead.
She spent the first two months after the crash in a coma.
On May 31, shortly after 7 a.m. Naccarato was pinned under an SUV at St. Mary’s Road and Fermor Avenue. The SUV could be seen in surveillance footage from a nearby business driving through the intersection, narrowly missing a van before slamming into a car.

The vehicle flipped onto its side and pinned her underneath. The family credits bystanders, who leapt into action and lifted the vehicle off her, in helping save her life.
Her family had previously said there was no significant spinal or organ injuries but she had significant brain swelling.
Global News has learned the police investigation is still active and ongoing. As of Wednesday morning no charges had been laid.
