SANTA ROSA (KRON)–A Santa Rosa woman is learning to walk again while coping with the loss of her unborn child after being hit by a driver who was under the influence of drugs.
The DUI crash happened along Highway 12 in Santa Rosa, and 33-year-old Elizabeth Ehrmann-Subia’s life changed forever in a split second.
“I didn’t even see him coming,” said Ehrmann-Subia. “I didn’t have time to hit the breaks.”
According to police, the driver, 40-year-old Tristan Taliesin, was under the influence of methamphetamines.
Ehrmann-Subia was on her way to Sebastopol to pick up her 2-year-old daughter when she was struck head-on by Taliesin.
She was 22-weeks pregnant and as a result of the crash, lost her unborn child.
Ehrmann-Subia had six surgeries since the collision.
Surgeons operated on a ruptured bladder, emergency c-section, crushed pelvis, a hernia, and a broken ankle.
