jail cell doorWoman who was struck by vehicle has undergone 17 surgeries in the past year.

A 21 year old Barrie area man has been sentenced in connection with a drunk driving incident that left a young woman with a severely injured right leg.

Eric Bravener of Springwater Township was convicted of impaired driving causing bodily harm and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

On Tuesday, Bravener was sentenced to one year in jail, followed by two years probation.

His licence is suspended for three years and he must pay $400 in victim services charges.

On August 11th, 2014, 20 year old Mallorie Wild was walking home with friends around 2:30 AM when she was hit from behind by a car.

She was pulled under the car and dragged until it collided with another parked vehicle.

The Barrie woman has filed an $11-million lawsuit against the impaired driver, his mother who owned the car and two bars in Barrie that she says over-served him, Bourbon and the British Arms Pub.

Since the crash, Wild has spent months in and out of hospitals, undergoing a total of 17 surgeries in just over a year.

Wild has undergone a bone graft, skin graft, vein graft and muscle transplant, among other treatments.

John McLeish, the lawyer representing Wild, said the amount claimed in the lawsuit is meant to cover future loss of income and care.
