A hit-and-run nearly claimed a Dallas woman's life. But, she survived and now hopes her story will encourage the driver to come forward.
Omega Jones is in a wheelchair with a broken collar bone, wrist and two broken legs.
All she remembers about last Thursday night was her co-worker's car breaking down and waiting on the Highway 67 Cockrell Hill exit ramp for help.
The next thing she knew she woke up at Methodist Hospital.
Even though she's still in a lot of pain, Jones doesn't blame the driver who plowed into her, drove down the embankment and then kept going on the highway.
"I just want this person to know I don't have any hard feelings towards them," she said. "I'm going to get through this, it's just gonna take me a little bit longer."
Jones doesn't know how long she'll be in the hospital.
She's worked at Target's distribution plant in Midlothian for the past eight years and plans to return.
Meanwhile, the Dallas County Sheriff's Department is searching for witnesses to lead them to the hit-and-run driver.
