Woman involved in wreck with Mayor-elect leaves hospital

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The woman severely hurt in a car wreck involving Mayor-elect Steve Benjamin is out of the hospital.

Deborah Rubens is recovering at home. Her lawyer, Rick Detwiler, says Rubens is continuing to get better and is getting around a little bit with a walker. He also says she and her family are grateful for the community's support, prayers and concern.

Benjamin's SUV collided with Rubens' car near Gervais and Pickens Streets in downtown Columbia around 5:40am April 21.

Benjamin was cited for not having his headlights on.  Rubens was issued a citation for driving without insurance.

Doctors released Rubens June 4, the same day Columbia Police released its report on the investigation.
