Officials say the outlook does not look good for Cove as she remains in critical condition at WakeMed.

Another cyclist, 55-year-old Virginia Davis, was also seriously injured but is doing better and will be OK.

Cove, who works as the transportation director for the Town of Cary, is on life support and not expected to survive.

Town of Cary employees wore pink Friday to support her.

Friends and family are hoping for a miracle in her recovery.

“She’s an amazing person. She’s a brilliant professional and anytime anybody within our transportation community is affected, we’re all really distressed that she’s dealing with what she’s dealing with now and we’re pulling for her,” said Eric Lamb, City of Raleigh transportation planning manager.

Moore has been charged with two counts of felony hit-and-run.

Additional charges could be filed if Cove dies.
