Woman, 18, Struck By Car In Ridgefield Being Taken Off Life Support

An 18-year-old woman struck by a car in Ridgefield last Saturday afternoon was being taken off life support so that her organs can be donated, her brother said.

Sarah Ye Eun Kim was hospitalized in critical condition after she was struck on Shaler Boulevard near Pleasant View Terrace, right near her home, around 4 p.m. Feb. 9.

"The past week has been the hardest time for our family as we've had to hear from doctors of her near full brain dead state," said her brother, Pastor Paul S. Kim.

"She took her first test [Friday] morning to see if she is brain dead and the result came back that she was," he wrote. "The second test, which is done 6 hours later, determined the first diagnosis was correct."

Given the news, "we have decided to donate her organs," Kim said, adding that her sister would remain on a ventilator until Sunday, the latest, "as they find matches for her organs."

He established a GoFundMe page to help the family meet funeral expenses: Sarah Kim (GoFundMe)

Since GoFundMe takes a percentage, he urged others to send donations via his venmo ID: pkim101 or via: paypal.me/pkim101.

"At the end of the day, we believe the Lord will provide whatever it is that we need and we are content no matter what happens," he said, Kim said.
