A 62-year-old woman died early Saturday from injuries suffered during a car crash two weeks ago in Keller, police said.
Wyona “Cookie” Clardy died at 3:20 a.m. at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Grapevine. Clardy worked as an office administrator for RE/MAX Heritage, according to the company website.
“I truly love being the first face you see when you enter the RE/MAX Heritage office,” her “about me” says on the company website. “I enjoy having the opportunity to greet people with a smile and answer phone calls with a cheerful voice.”
Clardy was taken to the hospital May 5 after being struck by a tow truck driver about 9:30 p.m. on U.S. 377 near Keller Parkway.
The man driving the tow truck plowed into cars stopped at a red light, and a total of five vehicles were involved. Other injuries were treated on scene.
The driver, Gary Randall Dilworth, 52, was arrested on a charge of intoxication assault with a motor vehicle causing serious bodily injury, which may be upgraded. He also faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a city press release.
