Grandmother Hit by Car in Own Driveway; Driver Took Off
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP -- Investigators are still searching for the driver who hit a Washington Township grandmother in her driveway and then took off.
Sue Clark was struck late Saturday night as she got the mail from the mailbox from her Cylo Road home.
The driver never stopped, leaving the mom to nine and grandmother to 37 laying in her driveway.
Her husband Blake has not left her bedside as she awaits surgery to her wrist. He says it's a miracle that she wasn't more seriously hurt or killed.
Blake adds their home sits on a very dangerous stretch of Cylo Road and the 45 mile per hour speed limit should be lowered there.
Investigators are hoping someone saw something and will come forward to help them find the hit and run driver who struck Sue Clark if you have info you can call the sheriffs office at 225-4357.
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP -- She's a grandmother to more than 30 kids, and now, she's laid up in a hospital bed because of a hit and run driver.
Sue Carter was hit by a car in her own driveway then the driver took off.
"It's good when she can rest," said Blake Carter, at his wife's bedside.
Blake Carter tends to his high school sweetheart and wife of 51 years who's now suffering in pain.
"There are miracles obviously, she probably would not be here unless there were some other intervention," he said.
Blake is emotional after his wife was hit by a car on Clyo Road in Washington Township while she was walking to the end of the driveway to get the mail late Saturday night.
"As we parked in the driveway, I went to the door to unlock the house," said Blake, "When I opened the door to go back outside, my wife was screaming, 'Blake! Blake!' very loudly."
Blake says the car came up the hill, hit the mailbox, then his wife before speeding off.
"I could not see her. I ran out and she was lying on the end of the driveway, and things scattered about her," he said.
Now, this mother of nine, grandmother of 37 and great-grandmother of one with another on the way, sits in the hospital bed, waiting to have surgery on her wrist.
Meanwhile, her dedicated husband hasn't left her bedside and prays that something good can come out of their tragedy.
"It's a very dangerous section of road," said Blake, "control the traffic situation there so that these types of things don't happen to others, either to us again or to our neighbors."
Blake says he's witnessed six different people die in car accidents in front of his home.
He believes it's a dangerous stretch of Clyo Road and the speed limit should be lowered.
Right now, it's 45 miles per hour.
