Victim of hit and run searches for driver

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK– A woman is hit by the driver of a van who sped off after she fell to the ground.

Now she wants to know who was behind the wheel.

Lori Hicks says she was walking a short distance on 122nd Street near Reynolds to her daughter’s house on July 8th at 1:30 a.m.

 A light blue van going 45 miles an hour slammed into her and left the scene

Hicks suffered a torn rotator cuff, ripped tissue, and a swollen leg with cuts and bruises.

Hicks said she has health insurance and doesn’t want anything from the driver. She is just pleading for the driver to come forward.

Hicks said, “It’s wrong to hit someone and not stop. I’ve seen people hit dogs and they stop and some people will even take them to the vet. I’m more than a dog I’m a grandmother, a mother of three. I have a husband and family who love me. I could have been easily taken away from them.”

Hicks is happy to be alive.

Anyone with information on this hit and run is asked to call Oklahoma City Police.
