  1. 3/4
    Hit and Run
    414 Manheim St

    I was headed south down Manheim around 6pm on Monday 3/4/19 when I saw a white sedan hit the tail of a grey suv that was turning left across the main road. The white sedan swerved left around them rather than slow down, lost control, jumped the curb, and hit a pedestrian waiting for the bus. They didn’t stop, but sped towards me, barely missing the nose of my car by inches. I slammed on the brake and my phone flung within my car from the jolt.

    I don’t think anyone caught the license plate. Three cars pulled over to access the damage. A white woman from the suv and black man behind me in a black mustang stopped and both called 911. I couldn’t find my phone that fell in my car, so I just waited.

    Most injured from the impact was the pedestrian, a young black woman. She was hit head on, flew backwards 16 feet in the air, and stayed conscious. Her shoes flew off, her leg bent, and her phone totally cracked. She did not fly over the car. She said her arm, legs, and head hurt. I put my black and white scarf on her to keep her warm as we waited. She laid there without moving for 15 minutes until an ambulance came. They put her in a neck brace and lifted her onto the stretcher.

    They didn’t ask us many questions and the police never showed. They wanted to know if she was in the street or on the curb. She was clearly on the curb. There were muddy tire marks on the curb.

  2. That’s terrible. Glad you weren’t injured. I hope the cops follow up with the two other motorists. That driver needs to be caught!
