A 26-year-old Carlstadt motorcyclist is facing a partial leg amputation following a crash last week that left her critical.

More than $4,700 had been raised for Katie Kristner as of Sunday evening on a GoFundMe launched by Seif Fahmy.

Katie Kistner was struck by a Kia sedan while turning left onto The Boulevard in Hasbrouck Heights May 9.

A pair of Hasbrouck Heights police officers applied a tourniquet to her leg before she was transported to HackensackUMC with several broken leg bones and a collapsed lung.

"The road to recovery will be long, hard, and grueling, but we know with everyone’s support Katie will be just fine," Fahmy said on the campaign page.
