Former Pinnacle reporter Kate Woods was discharged from a hospital Saturday three weeks after a single-car accident in southern San Benito County left her in critical condition, according to a spokeswoman for Regional Medical Center of San Jose.

At about 11:30 p.m. Oct. 17, Woods drove a 1995 Mazda Miata off the road at Panoche and Recaldi roads. The vehicle turned over, and she was ejected from the car, according to the California Highway Patrol. She was airlifted from the scene after the CHP found her unconscious on the roadside.

She had been listed in critical condition for nearly two weeks before being upgraded in status to serious condition, according to the spokeswoman, Leslie Kelsey.

As a longtime reporter for the Pinnacle, Woods was known for her coverage of local government and a weekly column called “Report from the Badlands.”
