A TEEN who was injured in a hit and run is appealing for a mystery woman to come forward and help in her hunt for the driver.
Kerri Frost, 18, was using the zebra crossing in Heathfield Terrace last month, when she was hit by a man in a black car, who then sped off, leaving her with a broken pelvis.
The teaching assistant from Rowan Road in Brentford is hoping a woman who witnessed the crash at 2pm on March 25, may see her appeal and come forward to help the police find this dangerous driver.
Kerri was on her lunch break from Heathfield House School in Heathfield Gardens, when she was was hit by the speeding vehicle, she said: "I looked before crossing and the car seemed far enough away so I stepped out.
"But I was about three quarters of the way across when I saw the bonnet out of the corner of my eye. I rolled over the car and I think I went into shock, so I just got up."
A woman who Kerri remembers as being white, in her late 30s and driving a red car, stopped and asked if she was OK, before following the hit-and-run driver to the traffic lights outside HSBC in Chiswick High Road. Here Kerri saw her talking to the man while he waited at a red light.
"He just sped off when the lights changed but I would like this woman to come forward as she may be able to help the police more than I can as she may remember more details than me," said the teen.
Kerri who now feels nervous when crossing the road, met up with her boyfriend after the crash who took her to report the "accident" at Chiswick police station where an ambulance was called.
"I had to take a week off work and then spent the two week Easter holiday in a lot of pain. It may take up to eight years to completely heal and I am having to have physio, it's really awful. I went back to work on Monday because I can't afford to take any more time off."
The police have told Kerri that they are unable to go any further with their enquiries as there is no evidence to convict anybody. The police also told Kerri that later that day a man went into Chiswick police station to "warn them" that someone would come into the station falsely accusing him of knocking them over.
"I just really hope somebody who saw the crash comes forward. I want to see this man punished. He could just go to hit someone else now and they might not be as lucky as me."
