Last Tuesday, Shannon Jacaway had just gotten off her shift from the Ramada, when she entered the crosswalk on Great Basin Boulevard and was struck by a vehicle.

She was transported to William Bee Ririe but due to her extensive injuries had to be life-flighted to the University of Utah Medical Center.

She suffered a broken leg, broken arm, shattered hips and a stroke. She has since undergone several surgeries, and it is reported that her recovery is going to be  several months long.

Shannon is the mother of 4 children, and a grandmother of one child.

A go fund me account has been set up to assist her and her family. If you would like to help,  go to and search by Shannon’s Medical Fund.
