Family pleads for help finding hit-and-run driver

"She has two broken legs, a broken arm where the bone came through her skin, a broken shoulder, broken back, neck and spine. She also has bleeding in the brain," said Tammy McNeil as she describes the traumatic injuries her mother suffered at the hands of a driver who hit her and kept going.  She's still in critical condition on a ventilator a week after it happened.

"This shouldn't have happened to anybody," she said.

65-year-old Cynthia McNeil had just come home from work at Bryn Mawr Hospital where Tammy says she works in Labor and Delivery.  It happened sometime between 7:30 and 8 o’clock that night after Cynthia parked her car and crossed Ninth Street in Chester to go in the house.  Tammy recorded cell phone video of the crime scene when she got to her mother's house that night not knowing her mother was the victim.

"I had no idea it was her because I'm thinking she's at her sister’s house."

Tammy says that's when her phone rang.  It was Crozier Medical Center calling about the accident.

"I was like what? Stuff started clicking like I just took pictures of my mom's accident and I had no idea," said Tammy.  She’s now looking for help finding the person who did this.

"A witness said it was a girl that got out screamed and said call 911, jumped back in the car and turned back down Barclay Street.  Nobody deserves to be hit like that and not know who did it," said Tammy.

Witnesses tell police the driver was in a dark colored car.
