[TX] Ex-Trooper Fetters' critically injured passenger Anna not mentioned now in the retelling of his fatal crash

It was December 19th 2009. Steven William Fetters, a Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper for over 19 years went for what seems like a deliberately deadly high-speed ride in his white Ford F250 pickup, crashed into an unsuspecting traveling SUV (Billy Parker and her family are ok) - and fled that scene in a blur - "0 to 90". Soon after he was rolling the truck several times after it must have left the road flying. He was pronounced dead shortly after. The memorial articles are out there in the news differing from the original reports - saying he MAY have hit another vehicle before his fatal crash and make no mention of his critically injured passenger Anna Faith Burchell, or that there even was a passenger. Anna was also sent flying through the air from the truck he had turned into a spiraling torpedo. There's no follow up on Anna. It's all about him. No care for the woman who had no control over her life or death.

There was an honoring memorial service for Fetters - as an ex law enforcement officer, as having served in the Marines, and for the overall good he's done.

Is Anna still alive? Improving?
Crippled for life? Fighting like a champ?
Brokenhearted? (Finally safe?)

The local news sources don't bother say.

I'm still waiting. (It looks like a failed attempted murder-suicide to me.)

One commenter after a Fetters tribute article did mention Anna - not by name, but said:

"I feel sorry for his family and his girl friend and I hope she survives. I also hope that the people in the hit and run are all ok."
