Early speculation is that she likely hit her head twice, once on the windshield (which has hair on it that is likely hers) and then again on the ground, though that is still to be confirmed by Oak Bay and Saanich Police crash analysts, said Oak Bay Deputy Police Chief Ray Bernoties.
Police are reminding witnesses who attend the scene of a traffic incident not to move items such as shoes, as crash analysts rely on evidence to compile their file.
