Injured student's condition improving after Monday scooter accident

A UF sophomore who was seriously injured in an accident last week has been showing signs of improvement.

Ashley Ann Groves, 20, struck a gray Acura TL on her scooter Monday near Southwest Second Avenue and Southwest 26th Street. She was listed in fair condition Sunday evening.

Groves was initally listed in critical condition when she was transported to Shands at UF on Monday afternoon. She was listed in serious condition, which is a less life-threatening situation, later in the week.

Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police Department spokesman, said he wouldn't know about charges being made until today.

GPD Lt. Will Halvosa said as of Tuesday that the investigation is ongoing.

Carly Sewell, a UF freshman, said she has known Groves for several years. They knew each other from their hometown of Groveland, Fla.

Sewell said Groves' birthday was on Saturday. She said Groves' close friends and family brought her cake, balloons and gifts.
