Woman injured in carjacking released from hospital

Thelma Brown, 69, who was injured in the carjacking crash Friday that killed three children, was released Wednesday from Hahnemann University Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Brown suffered a broken ankle and bruised sternum when a carjacked SUV veered out of control and crashed Friday at Germantown and Allegheny Avenues, killing 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-year-old Thomas Joseph Reed, and 7-year-old Terrence Moore.
