This story is pretty close to home. In fact 485 runs along the back side of the subdivision where I live. The morning of the accident I was out for a run with my Labs when I heard the non stop sirens.
Every parents nightmare and far too many ass clown drivers in Charlotte. How about we jerk this one's chain good and hard?
An Indian Trail Town Council member's daughter remains in the trauma Intensive Care Unit at Charlotte Medical Center.
Twenty-one-year-old Christina Morris has been there since her car was hit from behind on Interstate 485 near Providence Road two weeks ago. Her parents are hoping someone will come forward with information on the driver.
Troopers say Christina's car was in the right lane, trying to pass a silver SUV in the left, when the SUV accelerated, hitting her back left fender. Christina's car was sent spinning into a tree. The other driver in the SUV bolted.
Christina's mom, Darlene Luther, happened to be on the phone with a passerby at the time.
"Oh my gosh, that car is in the freakin' tree," she said the caller told her. "I'm just thinking oh, my gosh, that's horrible. But you know, you're so removed from it.".
Witnesses describe the SUV as silver in color and say the driver was acting agressively prior to the accident. Christina's parents are pleading with the public to come forward if they know something about the other driver.
"If you have kids, imagine it's your kids," Scott Luther said. "Turn this guy in. I don't care who he is. If you know somebody pontentially, imagine it's your child."
A $2,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. If you have informatin call Crime Stoppers, at 704-334-1600.
