Kim has been hospitalized since the night of the April 27 crash in Oconee County. A Brookwood High School graduate, Kim was driving a Toyota Camry northbound on Ga. 15 when she crossed the center line and drove into the path of a Chevrolet Cobalt, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
Three passengers in the Toyota died at the scene of the wreck and the fourth died at the hospital. The crash killed all four passengers in Kim’s car: Kayla Leigh Canedo, 19, of Alpharetta; Brittany Katherine Feldman, 20, of Alpharetta; Christina Devon Semeria, 19, of Milton; and Halle Grace Scott, 19, of Dunwoody.
In September, the family released a video of Kim speaking for the first time.
"Thank you for praying for me. I am getting better," Kim said in the video.
