UNT student recovering after hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:
DENTON, Texas -

A University of North Texas student says dealing with the challenges of life in a wheelchair are just as hard as accepting the fact that the hit-and-run driver that crashed into her is still out there unidentified and on the loose.

Lisa Brunet's accident happened at about 9:30 p.m. on June 27. She had gone to downtown Denton to watch a band's live performance and last remembers she was about the cross the street.

Friends said a black pickup truck hit her. They said it sounded like two cars crashing together.

Brunet spent several weeks in the hospital. Her pelvis was fractured in five places. She broke her leg, damaged her shoulder and more.

Denton police are still trying to track down the vehicle and the driver responsible, but they said they have very little evidence to go on. They're hoping someone in the public can help.

Brunet is looking to the future and through it all has a positive attitude about the investigation and being able to walk again.

Once a runaway and print model in New York, she's also looking forward to one day being the art director of an art agency.
