The Raleigh woman struck on an I-85 ramp in Salisbury on Friday was in good condition Tuesday at Carolinas Medical Center.
Chantal Listte Rouson James, 21, of Raleigh, sustained serious injuries when the car struck her as she was walking across the ramp at Long Ferry Road.
A helicopter airlifted her to Carolinas Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition the next day.
Hospital officials listed her condition as good on Tuesday, and her mother said she was doing well for someone who had been in a major accident.
“She is feeling better and is much improved,” said Janine Rouson of Raleigh.
The young woman suffered broken bones on her left side, her mother said, and would have to go through some rehabilitation before she could leave the hospital.
The accident happened as a highway patrolman was helping to change a flat tire on the car James had been traveling in. Marguerite Blizzard of Salisbury was driving the car that struck her.
