Former pro snowboarder and athlete manager Roberta Walker was seriously injured on Saturday morning December 8, 2018 when she was hit by a truck while cycling in her hometown of Leucadia, California according to a story in The Coast News.

Roberta Walker was struck shortly after 6 a.m. on North Coast Highway 101 in front of the Leucadia Post Office. The impact of the collision threw her a significant distance and she was briefly unconscious. . . Walker was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, where she is listed in critical but stable condition after suffering serious injuries to her brain and spine, as well as several broken bones, according to Kellie Shay Hinze, Walker’s friend and executive director of Cardiff 101’s sister organization, Leucadia 101 Main Street.

According to the website set up to update everyone on Roberta’s condition she “received a blood transfusion and the results are now looking good. She also had surgery on her lung that went well. Recent CT scans show no further bleeding. Roberta is doing much better today and things are moving in the right direction. Her labs are all almost in the normal range. Her lungs are doing much better. They are going to keep her resting another couple of days to let her brain trauma recover.”
