Hit-and-run victim recovering with a positive attitude

One of the victims of a Nov. 27 hit-and-run in downtown Rochester has started her road to recovery.

Becky Dass, 23, was hit after she left work at Kahler Grand Hotel in Rochester by 32-year-old Christopher Trautman. Trautman admitted he was drunk when he hit four people, KSTP reported. The four injured were in two separate accidents.

Trautman didn't stop and help Dass when she flew the windshield of her vehicle.

"I flew over the car and hit the ground," Dass told KSTP. "I was spitting glass out and screaming for help."

Dass suffered a broken leg and torn ACL, but is now on the road to recovery with a smile on her face.

The Associate Press reports Trautman, of Orono, faces 14 charges for injuring four and killing one. Trautman had a blood-alcohol level of 0.18 when he hit the victims.
