Fall River, Mass. (WLNE)- Fall River Mayor Paul Coogan’s wife is back home after being in the ICU after being struck by a car on October 31.

Judi St Hilaire was hit by a vehicle while on a 60 mile bike ride with Narragansett Bay Wheelman. The car hit three cyclists after running a stop sign.

Judi sustained 12 broken ribs, punctured lungs, and broken collarbones.

The Mayor announced the update on his Facebook page Monday evening.

Mayor Coogan wrote on Facebook, “This may be the last update post! Today Judi left the hospital and came home. She is still going to have a long recovery and healing process but she feels a little bit better every day. Your prayers must’ve worked because Judi left the hospital much sooner than anyone thought. Thank you everyone for all the support you’ve shown us over the last week!”
