KWCH Reporter Injured In Car Accident

Comments Off

Alana Rocha, KWCH 12, was critically injured in a car accident last Saturday. Wichita Police believe the driver that crashed into her car was driving while drunk.

Police say they first spotted the driver because he almost crashed into another car. They thought he was stopping when he pulled into a parking spot but the man kept on driving through an alleyway and back onto the road.

He was traveling between 60-70 mph when he ran three red lights before clipping a car when crossing the street before crashing into the passenger side of Rocha’s car.

39-year-old Albert Faldet was taken into custody late Thursday afternoon. He was charged in Alana’s accident and a previous one Friday afternoon.

Rocha remains in ICU at Via Christi-St. Francis Hospital. As of Sunday afternoon, she remains in critical condition – but is showing some improvement.
