BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

Bay St. Louis Councilwoman Wendy McDonald is making progress in her recovery from critical injuries she received when a car hit her. McDonald has been hospitalized since May 2 when a driver ran into a crowd of people leaving a funeral outside Our Lady of the Gulf Church.

She’s being treated in New Orleans for various injuries, including serious head injuries. According to Mayor Les Fillingame, McDonald is walking and talking “which is huge after brain injuries.”  

The next step in her recovery, Fillingame said, is likely a stay in a New Orleans rehabilitation hospital.
