The 90-year-old woman, who was struck and pinned underneath a pick-up truck Thursday, in Yellowknife is on life support at an Edmonton hospital.

She's waiting for surgery on her pelvis and arm. The woman also has a punctured lung, broken ribs and a fractured skull.

The 30-year-old woman charged with hitting her with the pickup truck, appeared in court Friday afternoon.

Toni-Lynn Buggins-Godin faces charges of careless driving, failing to yield to a pedestrian, and driving while prohibited.

Buggins-Godin will remain in custody for now.

Her lawyer is arguing for a special arrangement, as Buggins-Godin is currently breastfeeding her seven-month old baby.

She's scheduled to appear in court again July 3.
