Central Florida News reported that a hit-and-run accident on September 6 sent a woman to the hospital with critical injuries, and the woman’s family is pleading with the public for help in finding the driver who fled the scene. According to law enforcement officials investigating the accident, the head-on accident occurred before 3 a.m. and witnesses were unable to provide a positive description of the vehicle involved.
The 35-year-old Orlando victim was reportedly riding her motorcycle on West Colonial Drive near the intersection of Emeralda Drive when a car hit her head-on, resulting in the woman suffering critical injuries. She was treated at Orlando Regional Medical Center and was reportedly alert and talking to family and friends. The Orlando hit-and-run accident victim told family members that the impact sent her flying into the car’s windshield. She said that the car’s driver then reached through the broken glass, pushed her off the hood and then fled the scene of the accident.
The hit-and-run accident victim’s family is hoping that someone who sees or knows someone with a car that has considerable front end damage will come forward with information that will lead to the driver’s arrest. A member of the victim’s family said, “If you have any information, if you could just call the police, advise them of what you know because, you know, this is our sister and, of course, we love her. It could be anyone’s mother, brother, sister, father, uncle. So you got to think what if it had been your family member. You know, we deserve to know or, you know, someone to come forward and admit they made a mistake.”
The accident victim’s family released a photo to the press that shows the victim with a broken nose, arm and wrist. The victim suffered a fractured pelvis and injuries to her left knee.
