"Knowing that it was a friend of mine that got hit last night, that just hit me by surprise," Bobby Maurina said.

Maurina told FOX6 News he spoke with the 27-year-old victim just moments before she was struck.

"She stopped at Open Pantry, grabbed herself some snacks and was just on her way home," Maurina said.

Maurina said the woman suffered multiple broken bones.

"I know she`s got some upper body injuries for sure. She`s definitely scraped up. And the dude that hit her, he took off. He didn`t even stop," Maurina said.

Maurina said he's hopeful the surveillance footage helps lead officers to the vehicle and the person who was behind the wheel.

"They don`t drive carefully down here. It`s terrible," Maurina said.

    So much hatred, ignorance and racism on this website’s comments. Closet-racists who make generalizations based upon false assumptions. There is much more to worry about. Things that matter.

    • QUANTUM IS JEN? SEEMS LIKE...

      Oh, did I hit a nerve Quantum, I mean Jen. Guess i’ll repost this since you seem to be a crybaby. Where is there any “racist posts”, I don’t see any.. in fact I don’t see any posts that mention a RACE in particular. you DO realize that to be racist, a race has to be mentioned right? What generalizations were made based on what “False-assumptions”? How are any of the facts stated in any of these comments false assumptions? Sounds like it’s time to come up from your mom’s basement or up-the-dosage on your meds. Just because someone posts facts that you don’t “agree” with doesn’t make them a “bigot”, “Bible thumper” or anything of the sort, now does it? Sounds like you’re just trying to push your own closet racist agenda on everyone else. Pathetic.

  • Knowledge

    @MB you are probably right. The guy interviewed also has a warrant out for him. Nice to see him just roaming the streets and getting some camera time

  • Good luck in that neighborhood

    Reposted because of touchy-feely liberals who are pansies: Good luck finding the culprit since the driver was most likely an illegal with no driver’s license or insurance. I’m sure a pansy like Quantum thinks this is racist but it’s not.. it’s 100% truthful fact as someone who knows the neighborhood well. A friend of mine was almost hit walking down the sidewalk by guess what – an illegal with no driver’s license driving a vehicle with no insurance. If you don’t like the TRUTH and facts, maybe you should move to fantasy land.

    I love the ignorance of the comments on this story not one of you know the lady that got hit but automatically bc she was out at night walking home she is a prostitute it couldn’t possibly be that she maybe works 22nd shift or at a bar and does not drive… Also I know Bobby and have for a long time I can assure you that he is a great person and you should maybe a hobby other than looking people up on ccap … There are so many assumptions about things people have no idea about but feel the need to run their mouths and voice racicest and ignorant comments you people need help and Jesus jen

    • Kay

      Thank you for sticking up for my brother tell him we miss and love him!! And to not be shy n call us! This brought all of us to tears seeing he is ok!! Love you Bobby -Kay

      • Jen

        Kay I’m sorry I haven’t seen him in many years when I saw him on the morning news I was happy to see he was ok as well but I do miss him and hope he is doing ok. I know he’s had a rough couple of years with his dad passing and what not but I always hope the best for him he always made me laugh and was so much fun to hang out with. I couldn’t just sit by and say nothing when I saw the comments on this story especially about him.

    • JEN NEEDS AN EDUCATION

      LOL talk about ignorance, you can’t even spell racist and you obviously don’t even know what it MEANS since you seem to be referring to the prostitute comment as being racist somehow. That makes no sense. Maybe you should get yourself an education like the rest of the liberals that use the term “racist” to describe everything from someone giving them the wrong color of paint to not having their burgers cooked properly. LOL

        You’re missing the point. Someone gets badly hurt and theres nothing but stupid negative comments blasted all over this. So what if she was a prostitute. .. does that make her life less valuable than yours? Or anybodys? What if it was your kid or your kids friend that got hurt…. guarantee a different tune would be sung. The world is a crappy place already and the “better than thou” snobby, racist, biggot, nose stuck up, call for segregation, bible thumping hate mongers such as yourself add to the problem. So keep drinking your tea with your pinky stuck up, nose stuck up and eyes looking down on the rest of the world “believing” you are in any way shape or form better than the next man because youre not. I know jen and bobby, for many many years in fact. You dont know the hardships any of have endured. Jen does have a college education actually. Ever think the misspelled word could have been a typo or are you only capable of making uneducated assumptions? And no im not a liberal. I very much disagree with the majority of liberal beliefs. There is one i do believe in though… if it doesnt negatively affect you, mind your god damn business and move the hell on. Rant over

      • Jen

        I am sorry that typing on a phone and auto correct have made me sound uneducated to you. The racism I was speaking of was meant for the comment that she got hit by an illiagle with no license and that’s why they ran. I wasn’t talking about the prostitute. I already addressed that issue in my previous comment. I also do not appreciate the comment about Bobby having a warrant like that makes him less human or have less feelings for one of his friends getting hit by a car flung into the air and left in the road to die. I don’t think that any of these comments really focus on the heart of the story which is this poor young lady who got run over and criticly injured just crossing the street. What if that was your mom or your wife/ girlfriend or your daughter it doesn’t matter what her occupation is or why she was walking this is not her fault and there are some heartless people out there who damn near killed her and you people are more worried about if Bobby has warrants or she was a prostitute or if I can’t spell… The whole story and point has gone over your simple minds

      • JEN NEEDS AN EDUCATION

        Red and Jen seem to be the same brain-dead liberal, too funny. Gotta love how she’s calling everyone that doesn’t pander to her little needy attention-whoring post a “biggot, racist and Bible-thumper” of all things. I doubt she/it even knows what any of those big words mean. Acts like a liberal, quacks like a liberal.. most definitely a liberal. I also don’t see what is racist about pointing out the fact that there are a lot of illegals in the area without driver’s licenses or insurance? That’s a truthful statement as I’m familiar with the area as well. In fact, a race isn’t even mentioned in that statement.. you do know that a lot of races can be here Illegally don’t you? Wow are you dumb.
