SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A 72-year-old upstate New York woman who was injured by the same vehicle that hit and killed her daughter last week has been released from a Syracuse hospital.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (http://bit.ly/1nJIgHC ) that Barbara Cook of Adams was released Thursday from Upstate University Hospital.

Cook suffered serious injuries and her 43-yar-old daughter Jennifer Cook was fatally injured when a pickup truck veered across a Syracuse street and hit them as they walked to get lunch.

Jennifer Cook, an associate professor of English at Rhode Island College in Providence, was in central New York to visit her ailing 93-year-old father and to take her mother to a doctor’s appointment in downtown Syracuse.

The 86-year-old man driving the pickup hasn’t been charged. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
