The New York Times managing editor for news headed home yesterday after three weeks in the hospital recovering from injuries suffered when she was hit by a truck. Jill Abramson, who has a broken femur and fractured hip, tells the New York Observer that she still must undergo “an intensive course of physical therapy to re-learn to walk.”

Laid up at Bellevue Hospital, she followed a news diet consisting of the Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post. The truck struck Abramson, 53, at Broadway and West 44th Street, around the corner from her office. She and her husband have sued the driver, his employer, and the truck's owner.
