Virginia Beach, Virginia (WAVY) – Virginia Beach women are grateful to be alive after surviving what looked like a hit-and-run while walking in the neighborhood.
The woman is recovering, but no driver was found.
Edly O’Neal told 10 On Your Side that he had just been released from the hospital on Sunday. Those who know her are focused on finding her recovery and responsible.
“Honestly, I’m still shocked that someone can do this,” O’Neill said.
On Friday, O’Neill returned to her home on Clubhouse Road after finishing her morning training. She felt the car coming behind, so she glanced and said she had moved.
“I don’t remember anything other than getting up and feeling pain after that,” she said.
O’Neill doesn’t know how long he lost consciousness, but at some point he was able to get up and go home, but he still didn’t know what had happened.
“When I looked at my face, it was like someone taking medicine on my face, so I knew something else had happened,” O’Neill said.
She went to the hospital. Police responded there and eventually returned to Clubhouse Road.
“The detective found blood. He found a piece of headlight where I was,” O’Neill said.
O’Neill shared a photo of her injury. She suffers from orbital fractures, abrasions and bruises. She also needs oral surgery.
The 3800 Oceanfront condominium community where she works has launched a fundraising campaign to support medical expenses. Already raised nearly $ 10,000.
“The 3800 really hit everyone here,” said his friend Ben Humphreys, who started the fundraising campaign. “She is really loved in our building and we wanted to support her as much as possible.”
O’Neill is grateful for the support. Currently, the community wants someone to help the police and provide information.
“Even if it’s anonymous, someone needs to stop people doing that,” O’Neill said.
10 On Your Side contacted police with information about the incident and whether there could be a description of the suspicious vehicle, but did not respond.
O’Neill said he didn’t know the make and model of the last vehicle he approached, and said it was a car, not a truck or SUV.
