Caught on Camera:  Woman hit in crosswalk

LATEST:  The victim is speaking out to 13 Action News two days after the crash.  The 57-year-old was too traumatized to release her name. 

"I didn't have a chance to get out of the way," she said.

The woman was on the way to a job interview when she was hit in the crosswalk.

"I turned around and the car was already on me," she said.

Right now, she has broken bones and bruises all over her body.  She is scheduled to have surgery Thursday.  The procedure is to reconstruct her hip.

She says she is speaking out now because police still need help identifying the driver. 

"My mom was clearly in the crosswalk," said Anna Padilla. 

The family wants to thank the Good Samaritans. 

"Having a good heart to just make sure she was okay," said Padilla.

ORIGINAL:  Video captures a hit-and-run that happened Tuesday morning at the intersection of Maryland Parkway and St. Louis.

"I was concerned they were going to run her over again," said Mingo Collaso.

Collaso had installed a dashcam in his car.  His camera showed the terrifying incident unfold.

After witnessing the woman hit the ground, Collaso called 911 and diverted traffic to protect her. 

"I want everyone to share the video," he said, "that way we can catch this person."

It's unclear if the pedestrian had the light.

13 Action News is reaching out to police to get more details regarding this incident.

The extent of the woman's injuries are unknown; however, she was seen moving after the collision.
