Mother still recovering after hit-and-run crash

A Henderson mother says she’s grateful she’s still alive to see her children celebrate the holidays after a terrible hit-and-run crash.  

Nearly a year later, and still no answers for Tanjanique Whidby, mother of three. 

In January, Whidby’s minivan came to rest on its roof after being hit by another vehicle at Boulder Highway and Major. 

Whidby was thrown out of her minivan while the other driver took off. That driver has yet to be caught yet.

Whidby says her world revolved around her kids, and knows while this Christmas may be tougher than others, she’s grateful they’re all together. 

"The whole time in the hospital when I didn't think I would recover, that was the only thing that kept me going was my kids like I have to stay here for my kids," says Whidby. "I need to do this so I can give my kids something for Christmas."
Whidby has set up a GoFundMe account in hopes that folks will come forward to help her get some presents for her kids to wake up to on Christmas morning.
