Jutta Adolph, the pedestrian hit by a car crossing Perkins Street on her way home to Cabot Estate from Jamaica Pond on Sept. 10, is at home. She is recovering from 10 separate fractured bones, a subdural hematoma, pneumothorax, three torn ligaments in her right knee and numerous contusions. She was released from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Oct. 2, according to Adolph’s partner, Peter Weiss, after being transferred there from Brigham and Women’s Hospital on Sept. 16.

Her dog, Oskar, was uninjured in the accident. Police filed a request for an immediate threat license suspension against the driver with the Registry of Motor Vehicles, according to the police incident report.

Cabot Estate residents were scheduled to meet with Department of Conservation and Recreation representatives, state Rep. Jeffrey Sánchez and state Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz on Wednesday evening this week to talk about what residents say are long-term problems crossing Perkins Street.
