2008 wrong-way Interstate 4 accident victim Summer Moll to be adopted

Summer Moll, the little girl who was badly injured and lost her mother when a drunken driver ran into them in 2008, is about to be adopted.

Summer's grandmother, Tammy Rosian, who has been caring for her since that crash, is scheduled to officially adopt her during a hearing Monday in Hillsborough County court.

Cheryl Maria Riemann, 29, of Ruskin pleaded guilty to driving drunk and causing the Sept. 10, 2008, crash on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway that killed Summer's mother, Jennifer O'Boyle, and injured Summer, then 4.

Riemann is in state prison.

The crash broke Summer's arms, legs, pelvis, eyeball socket and skull. Now 8, Summer has gone back to school but still suffers from a head wound and learning disabilities.
