Grove City Woman Survives Being Dragged By Hit-Skip Driver


UPDATED: Monday February 4, 2013 8:40 PM

A woman was released from the hospital on Monday after she says a vehicle hit her and dragged her down a street on the city's southwest side two days earlier.

Stevie Jeffrey said she got out of her car on Saturday near Sullivant Avenue and Evergreen Terrace to check a flat tire. Jeffrey said she started waving for help when she was struck.

"I remember waving. Then I remember knocking on a door. And then I don't remember much of anything," Jeffrey said.

Jeffrey said she wasn't sure how long she was lying on the side of the road before she regained consciousness and went for help. She believed the driver who hit her never slowed down and left her there to die.

"They had to have seen or heard something, or felt it. I would have felt it if I hit somebody," Jeffrey said.

Jeffrey, 32, of Grove City, was suffering from a broken arm, sprained fingers and several cuts and abrasions. She said she underwent more than 100 X-rays.

The single mother of two said she felt lucky she could still care for her children.
 
Columbus police said they had a vague description of the vehicle involved. Investigators were asking anyone who might have witnessed anything to call them.
