Stephanie Don­aghy said she was hit by the red Vauxhall Corsa at around 3pm on Wed­nes­day at the junc­tion of Fred­er­ick Street and Cam­per­down Road in Down­field.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have come spot­ted the driver, de­scribed as wear­ing a dark jumper with dark hair and glasses, after he nearly crashed head-on into an­other woman who was preg­nant.

Stephanie, 37, from Kirk­ton said: “It’s re­ally scary – I have never been in an ac­ci­dent be­fore. I was com­ing back from the doc­tors and com­ing down Cam­per­down Road to­wards Strath­mar­tine Road when a car came out from Fred­er­ick Street as I was com­ing to the junc­tion. The im­pact of it caused my wheel to ba­si­cally come off and the main body and driver side of my car is ru­ined.

“I soon re­alised he was not go­ing to stop and kept on driv­ing. He just sped off. When he got to the cross­roads at Strath­mar­tine Road, other cars had to put their brakes on. There were bits fall­ing off his car and he had smoke com­ing out the back but he kept go­ing at speed dur­ing the school run time.

“When I got out to call the po­lice, my legs were like jelly and my hands were shak­ing.”

An­other woman in­volved in the in­ci­dent was heav­ily preg­nant at the time and is un­der­stood to have gone into hos­pi­tal to give birth to­day.

Stephanie, a sport and fit­ness stu­dent, had only bought her Range Rover in Novem­ber.
