The two victims of a gruesome hit and run on Eastwood Park Road, in Half-way-Tree, St. Andrew say they’re both thankful to be alive.
Princess Stoddart and Roshane Aarons were mowed down by a taxi that inexplicably mounted a sidewalk along the busy thoroughfare on Wednesday.
Both were taken to the hospital where they’re being treated for extensive injures.
But, they’re searching for a second man who’s now alleged to have been the one driving the car.
The police have since taken into custody a taxi operator to whom the vehicle was assigned.
The woman who was hit by the car is Princess Stoddart.
She says she’s an auto-parts dealer who uses her business to support her children.
According to Ms. Stoddart, she was flung into a wall after being hit by the car.
Everything after that, she says, is blurry.
Ms Stoddart says she’s awaiting the the results of tests she’s done to determine if she suffered any broken bones.
But, the survivor of the horrific hit and run says she’s bruised and in pain.
Meanwhile, the man who was also mowed down by the careening car, Roshane Aarons, says he remembers very little about the incident.
Acting head of the Constabulary’s Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, Senior Superintendent Gary McKenzie, says the police are looking for the man alleged to have been driving the taxi.
SSP McKenzie says Ingram has 79 outstanding traffic tickets.
He’s appealing to any passengers who may’ve been in the car to come forward.
