Woman Seriously Injured in Pedestrian Hit-and-Run on 106th Ave. in Naples, Florida
NAPLES, FL. – According to an online news report posted at fox4now.com, a woman was seriously injured in a pedestrian hit-and-run that occurred on 106th Avenue in Naples, Florida. The woman has been hospitalized since the accident, and her husband wants authorities to find the person involved.*
The accident happened during the morning on the northbound side of 106th Avenue. Florida Highway Patrol and Fox 4 report that at about 7 a.m., a woman walking along the road was struck by a passing car. The car’s driver did not stay at the scene following the collision, according to the report, and the driver is still at-large.
The woman’s husband told reporters that his wife was on her way to work at the time. He said she had just sent him a text message to let him know she was leaving for work, a gesture she performed every workday morning, and before he had a chance to respond, the accident had already happened. The man said his wife was lying on the side of the road for about 20 or 30 minutes before someone found her and called 911.
Fox 4 states that the woman was seriously injured in the accident and taken to Lee Memorial Hospital. She reportedly suffered a broken neck, broken back, broken leg, and internal bleeding. Her husband says he wants the driver involved to be held accountable.
“To leave somebody, to hit somebody and know that you did it, and to see them lying there, and to purposefully and willfully leave the scene,” he said of the driver, “it’s unthinkable.”
Florida Highway Patrol is managing the case investigation. Troopers recovered part of a headlight at the scene, but a vehicle description was not reported. Anyone with information about the accident is urged to call Troopers at (239) 938-1800.
