Dover Hit and run victim, Stacey Parkerson
Dover, Florida - A woman is fighting for her life after becoming the victim of a hit and run crash.
It happened in front of a home at 14550 Sydney Road in Dover at 11:30 Friday morning.
"I just came out to a scene that you just don't want to see," said James Grimsley.
He was among the first witnesses to rush to the aid of Stacey Parkerson after hearing the accident that happened in the driveway of his home.
"Somewhere in this area is where she got hit," he described to 10 News as he pointed to the side of the road where he found Parkenson.
The driver of a four-door, silver or gray Dodge Pickup truck between the years 1994 and 2002 did not stop.
But there was a crucial clue left at the scene: the truck's front grill.
"We saw them slow, the passenger looked out the window. So now two people were in that truck, then sped off," said Grimsley.
The 31-year-old victim was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital and, at last word, had serious life-threatening injuries, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office
"Nobody ever thinks something like this could happen," said Courtney Glass, the victim's niece.
The 17-year-old told 10 News that her aunt regularly walks down the road to a convenience store nearby, but says the trek is very dangerous for pedestrians.
"People speed a lot, but you're not supposed to. There's no sidewalk, and I don't think it's safe for people to walk here," she said.
If you know anything about the Dodge Ram or its driver, you're asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
