Woman critically hurt in snowmobile accident is home

(KALISPELL)- A Kalispell woman critically injured in a snowmobile accident earlier this month continues to make remarkable progress, and is already coming home from a Seattle hospital. 

27-year old Ashley Gilbert suffered an internal decapitation when her sled crashed while she was riding on Canyon Creek Road on the North Fork January 8th. It's a severe spinal cord injury where only 30% of the victims are usually able to survive.

But the Flathead Beacon is reporting this week that Gilbert is not only talking and eating normally, but has been up and walking during her recovery at a Seattle hospital. She still has a lot more recovery and therapy ahead, but was being flown back to KMRC on Monday.
