Accident Victim, Kiya Posthuma, Carries Olympic Torch In Abbotsford
Jeffrey S. Witten
The cover of the February 5, 2010 Province newspaper features Miss Kiya Posthuma.
On January 25, 2010, Kiya was struck by a car in Abbotsford while going for her morning jog.
As a result of her car accident Kiya broke both sides of her pelvis and suffered a brain injury.
Despite suffering these significant injuries Kiya will be carrying the Olympic torch this coming Monday in Abbotsford.
In order to do so Kiya will require the use of a wheelchair.
Kiya's story is one of courage.
More to the point, Kiya's determination is reflective of the determination shown by many young men and women who've suffered severe injuries in motor vehicle accidents across British Columbia.
These young men and woman may not have the good fortune to carry the Olympic torch but will no doubt take great pleasure in watching Kiya do so on their behalf.
