Garcia says witnesses told her that the female driver didn’t appear to realize she hit Johnston and continued to back up until another witness ran over screaming and banged on the hood of the car.
“Thank God that lady was there to stop that driver because otherwise she would have completely ran all the way over my grandmother and she wouldn’t been here with us today,” said Garcia. When the car hit her, it hit her leg and it flew her leg, her foot was above her head when I got here, it was still like that, so she had been like for hours.”
