SHAWNEE, Okla. -- A Shawnee woman is in critical condition after a hit and run. Police are still looking for the driver.

Kristain Petry was left with a severe brain injury and has been in a medically induced coma for days after the tragic hit and run along busy Highway 18 in Shawnee, just off I-40.

“She’s a very loving, outgoing, outspoken person that I love very, very much,” the victim's sister, Dani Krause said.

Krause says she would do anything to talk with her sister right now.

“We don't know when she'll wake up, if she'll wake up,” Krause said.

Kristain was walking to Walmart from a nearby hotel, about a half mile away.

Witnesses told police a driver hit Kristain from behind, sending her into the air. We’re told she flipped multiple times.

The car behind the hit and run driver stopped immediately and called 9-1-1.

“They saw the car that hit her hit his brakes, look like he was going to stop and pull over, then continued on and  made a right on Shawnee Mall Drive and continue westbound,” Detective Jason Crouch said.

Police tell us the people who stopped to help Kristain shielded her from other cars and probably saved her life.

“Thank you for stopping and thank you for calling 9-1-1,” Krause said.

Police have been chasing down leads all week, but they haven’t had much luck.

That’s why they’re asking for your help.

“That’s my sister, there is a mother that is devastated, we're all devastated about this and we just want someone to come forward,” Krause said.

Police are looking for the driver of a small to medium white car.

The hit and run happened around 7:00 p.m. last Saturday night.

If you have any information, please call Shawnee police.
