DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews rushed a woman to the hospital after, police said, she was struck while crossing a Davie intersection by a driver who fled the scene.
Davie Police responded to the scene of the crash, near Stirling Road and University Drive, Friday, around 5:45 a.m.
Investigators said the victim, identified as 50-year-old Marrykutty George, was crossing University Drive while on her way to a Subway restaurant, where she works as a manager, when she was hit by a silver vehicle, possibly a Nissan.
“I don’t know what to say. My sister is in critical condition. She don’t deserve this. I don’t think anybody deserves what happened to her,” said the victim’s sister, Jessy Tharakan.
A witness told police he heard a loud bang and saw the victim being thrown in the air.
“Anybody who did this could have stopped there and took her to the hospital. This is not right,” said Tharakan.
Paramedics transported the victim to Memorial Regional Hospital where she was last listed in critical condition. The victim has multiple broken bones and a head injury.
“She’s not doing good,” said Tharakan. “I just want everybody to pray for her. We are all sitting there hoping that she will wake up.”
Police shut down all southbound lanes of University Drive at Stirling Road. Those lanes were later reopened.
Detectives said the silver vehicle, which is missing a broken right headlight, was last seen heading southbound on University Drive.
