MINNEAPOLIS (KCAU) – The sister of a former Sioux City man killed in a head-on crash in Minneapolis last month is making remarkable gains in her recovery.  

Alaura Fried, 25, of Lakeville, Minnesota, is the sole survivor of a wrong-way crash on a Minneapolis highway that took the lives of her brother, Tyler Fried, 27, formerly of Sioux City, two of their friends and the driver of the other vehicle.

According to a CaringBridge page maintained by Fried’s mother, Fried has spent the past several weeks recovering at the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) in Minneapolis.  

Fried received life-threatening injuries in the crash.  Since the accident, she has had surgeries to repair a broken pelvis, an ankle, and multiple lacerations.  She also has suffered a traumatic brain injury.

During the past week she has been moved from HCMC’s Intermediate Care Unit to its rehabilitation center for therapies to continue her recovery.

In a CaringBridge post, Fried’s mother, Gena says her daughter has a great attitude and is ready to get to work, and that “her personality is definitely coming back…her wit and humor are starting to peek through!”
