“I turn around and I look and the hand is showing, so I still got 15 seconds to cross the street,” she said. “This car is coming and I just turn into a deer in the headlights because of the speed that he's going at, and in the back of my head, I'm like, ‘I'm about to get hit.’”
Hernandez, 22, said she remembers the driver yelling at her instead of pulling over.
"He said, ‘That's what you get for crossing the street like that,’ and then he takes off,” she said. "Those words will not leave my head."
Davis was charged with duty to give aid or information, which is a third-degree felony.
“I raised my kids to be respectful, but I know he didn’t say nothing like that,” said Davis’ mother, who spoke to FOX 4 from behind the door of where her son is under house arrest.
Davis was home at the time, but she did all the talking.
“Why wouldn't he then get out of his car and help?” asked FOX 4’s Natalie Solis.
“Because he asked her if she was OK and she said he was fine,” said Davis’ mother.
Davis’ mother also said her son is disabled, but wouldn’t elaborate.
Hernandez, who suffered broken bones, bruises and scabs, says she’s just starting to feel like herself again and recently walked again for the first time.
