Surviving hit and run is ‘Rosh Hashanah miracle’
A JEWISH mother has appealed for help in tracking down a driver who left her daughter in a critical condition after a hit and run incident.
Samantha Harris, 24, was left with a ruptured spleen after being struck at speed by a car while crossing the road in Hornsey, north London, last Friday night.
Despite her severe injuries she managed to walk to a nearby hostel, where the emergency services were called.
Her mother Lysa, described her escaping even more serious injuries as “a Rosh Hashanah miracle”.
Ms Harris said she had done “everything I can think of” to find the hit and run driver, who she described as a black male “driving a black car”.
“Cycling groups are asking people to come forward if they saw anything, because a lot of cyclists wear head-cams. Local garages where the vehicle could have be taken for repair have been asked to contact the police.
“My faith is so strong for her. But we need to find this driver.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Detectives from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses to the collision to come forward.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC.
