LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – As the daughter of WAVE 3 Sunrise anchor John Boel continues her recovery after being hit by a car, she received a special visitor at her bedside.

Brianna Boel was one of two girls hit as they tried to cross the busy intersection at Hurstbourne Parkway and Linn Station Road Wednesday night. John tells us Brianna had surgeries for head injuries and broken bones to her leg.

The leg injury suffered by Brianna is similar to the one Kevin Ware had during the University of Louisville's national champion run. So what a surprise it was when Kevin stopped by to visit Brianna after surgery.

After Kevin's visit John posted on his facebook page, "What does Kevin Ware write when signing Brianna Boel's cast? 'Pinky Promise' 'You will be fine.'"

Witnesses told investigators the driver had the green light. No charges are expected to be filed.
