Bailey Ehasz


This past May there was a traffic accident on Fayette Street that resulted in Bailey Ehasz, a pedestrian, being knocked up 25 to 50 feet away from the point of impact.

While she has made an amazing recovery, she will always live with the damage caused by the accident (full story below).  The resulting medical bills and care she needs while she continues to recover have resulted in financial hardship for her family.  To assist her family through the holiday season you can click here or you can send donations to the Bailey Ehasz Fund by mailing checks payable to Bailey Ehasz to Wachovia Bank, 438 Fayette St., Conshohocken, PA 19428.

I have heard several people mention the accident and refer to the “little girl who got hit by a car.” Here is the full story from Jennifer Katz from the Chestnut Hill Local.

It was primary election day, and Bailey Ehasz and her friend had the day off. The two girls had been up late at Bailey’s house, hanging out, noshing on junk food and being silly. They passed out on the couches in the living room, and when Dawn Ehasz left for work the next morning, she remembers looking at the girls and pausing for a moment before she walked out the door with a “buh-bye, luv ya” to her sleeping 11-year-old and her friend.

“You remember the last thing you said to your child,” said Dawn, sitting in a friend’s house a few doors up from her family’s home in Conshohocken, recalling the morning of May 19.

Dawn was working as a registered medical assistant in a local doctor’s office and taking nursing classes at night. Her mother was working as the receptionist in the same office on that day when her husband, Mark, called upset and hysterical.
