APPLETON - A Lawrence University Student who was hit by a car is speaking out. The hit and run happened in Appleton about two weeks ago. The victim says it's time for the driver to come forward.
Some would say the security camera video is difficult to watch. The image is obscured by trees, but you can see a car on College Avenue in Appleton and then you see a body fly away from the car as it drives on.
"My parents were weeping and sick to their stomachs watching it, but I was just like, 'oh, that's terrible for that person,' and then I realized that was me," said Shannon Grant describing the video.
The Lawrence University Sophomore was in a lit crosswalk when she saw a car coming toward her. Fast.
"I tried to hurry, but I didn't hurry enough, I guess. That was the last thing I really remember," Grant explained.
Grant woke up with a broken leg and pelvis and road rash. She now has a lot of rehabilitation, but says it could have been worse.
"[I am] really thankful. Really surprised, but thankful," said Grant.
Appleton Police Sergeant David Lund told FOX 11 investigators are still looking for the suspect.
"We're still asking the public to take a look so we can get justice for the victim," Lund explained.
Lund told us the suspect is a woman. Her car is a Silver Chevy Impala, 2010 or newer, 4-door, with a rear spoiler and most likely front end damage.
According to Grant there is a lesson here for drivers.
"Be careful and considerate. Be cautious and if something does go wrong, be honest," Grant said.
Grant told us us she wishes the driver would have been honest and pulled over. Now she wants the driver to come forward.
"Just to have it be over and done with and, you know, realize you made a mistake or whatever and just kind of move on," Grant explained.
Grant told FOX 11 her plan is to finish rehabilitation at home in New York-and then she'll try to return to Lawrence in January.
Lund told us if the driver is found, she will be in more legal trouble than she might have been if she'd pulled over that night.
