Scared Monkeys Wishes KWCH Reporter Alana Rocha a Quick & Safe Recovery … Get Well Soon


Scared Monkeys recently attended the Texas EquuSearch Appreciation Day in Alana RochaArkansas City, KS with Tim Miller in conjunction with the search efforts for Jodi Sanderholm. During the fund raising event we had an opportunity to meet friends, family, law enforcement and members of the media. One of the TV Reporters was Alana Rocha who I spent time with discussing media coverage of missing person cases and the delicate nature and respect that is required.

It came as a shock to me today to learn that Alana Rocha was in a terrible accident Saturday morning. Alana Rocha remains in intensive care in critical condition after being hit by a presumed drunk driver.

KWCH 12 reporter Alana Rocha remains in intensive care at Via Christi-St. Francis Hospital in critical condition  As of Tuesday morning, she remains heavily sedated as doctors perform tests.

She was seriously hurt in an accident Saturday morning at First and Hydraulic.  Wichita Police say they believe the driver that crashed into her car was drunk.

Police say the man was going between 60 and 70 miles per hour when he ran three red lights.  He clipped one car when crossing Douglas before hitting the passenger side of Alana’s car.

“He’d already almost caused one accident,” says Captain John Speer.  “We’re blocks behind him and he’s still hitting cars at Douglas and goes on to First Street.”

Alana suffered serious internal injuries and is still in intensive care as of Monday evening. (KBSD)

      I have been sitting back and watching the news, following your horrific story. Finally, I decided to take some action instead of being passive.
      You, and your family, are in my thoughts and prayers. I watched you when you were in Hays and watched you move to the Wichita channel.
      Good positive thoughts to you.
