After Surviving Cancer, Motorcycle Accident, Sally Ann Okuly Dies The First Time She Leaves House In Six Months

A Virginia woman who survived cancer and a major motorcycle accident was killed the first time she left her home since the accident six months ago.

It was one week before her 41st wedding anniversary.

Sally Ann Okuly was going out for coffee when she was run over by a car at 9:30 a.m. last Sunday.

Crossing the street, with the light giving her the right of way to return to her Woodbridge home, Okuly was struck by 24-year-old driver Amanda Styles-Mays.

On Monday Sally and her husband Bill would have celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary.

"She's the most giving person ever," her husband told NBC News.

"One of her favorite things to do was walk across the street to the WaWa," Bill said of his wife. She bought a paper and a coffee, but never made it back.

He says his wife will always be with him, “Oh yeah, she’ll always be there.”

Styles-Mays was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and reckless driving.
