OKLAHOMA CITY-- Jackie Karban's husband Victor was near the street curb, spraying weed killer in their garden, when a car came out of nowhere.

With no time to react, Jackie says her husband was laying lifeless in the garden with no one to own up to the crime.

It happened just in front of their longtime home on NW 17 St. and Kentucky.

"I thought he was dead," said Jackie. "I really thought he was dead. He wasn't moving, he wasn't making a sound."

Thankfully, Victor was still alive, but badly injured, with a broken neck and back.

Despite the injuries, he held on. But, the driver of the car that hit him never looked back.

"That's when they lost their soul," said Jackie. "I was yelling, 'Stop! Stop! Come back!"

The car was out of sight before Jackie could even catch the tag number- but she did get a description.

"A Ford SUV, it was either white or gold."

Not much to go on, but they think Victor was hit head on and are hoping damage on the front of the car will help identify the driver.

Jackie says she just wants the person who did this to come forward and try to make it right.

"Come back and own up to it, and I can forgive you,  and God will get Victor and I through."
