Woman Killed on First Walk After Motorcycle Crash

By Shomari Stone

November 26, 2013

Sally Ann Okuly survived cancer. And she survived a motorcycle crash six months ago, feeling well enough to leave the house last weekend for the first time in half a year.

But, her determination was no match for a car Sunday morning. Okuly was struck by a car and killed as she left her Woodbridge, VA home for the first time, to cross the street to her favorite convenience store and buy a newspaper and cup of coffee.

Police say a car driven by Amanda Styles-Mays, 24, crashed into Okuly as she crossed at Opitz Boulevard and Montgomery Avenue. Okuly was crossing with the light and was in the crosswalk.

Styles-Mays has been charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and reckless driving.

"One of her favorite things to do was to walk over across that street to the Wawa gas station," said her husband, Bill Okuly, who still struggles with his emotions when he discusses his wife.

Sally Ann was also a mother of two. The couple -- who were members of the Rolling Thunder motorcycle club -- was set to celebrate their 41st anniversary Monday.

"She's the most giving person ever," Bill Okuly said.

But, he said, he feels his wife will always stay with him. "Oh yeah, she'll always be there," Bill Okuly said.

Things like that always remind me of the final destination movies. If death is following you, you cannot escape it.

I can't imagine how I'd feel if I hit that woman... especially with the circumstances.
