Rachel's Hit N Run No No Fun

On Thursday night October 4th Rachel was hit by a car while riding her bicycle. The driver made an illegal left turn and hit Rachel head on traveling at a very high speed. Rachel had a green light and the driver failed TO PAY ATTENTION. The driver FAILED TO SEE HER. The driver failed to yield to give her the right of way. The driver failed TO STOP AFTER HITTING HER HEAD ON. The driver made the disgusting decision to flee without rendering aid. They made the decision to flee without waiting for the police to arrive. They fled the scene leaving my sister in the middle of the road BLEEDING. The driver made no attempt to stop. Rachel's injuries are SERIOUS and her recovery process will be long. Luckily, a witness was able to follow the assailant that fled the scene AND was able to aid in getting the license plate number off the car--- 90014F (Honda paper plate). We are lucky and eternally grateful for the help of these Good Samaritans. They witnessed this horrific hit and run and took immediate action to follow the driver who fled. Rachel's journey to recovery is just beginning. As I write this she is in surgery now... any contributions made to this go fund me will be utilized to put Rachel back together. We are extremely lucky she is alive and will recover. Help, in any form, is vital and greatly appreciated. Please pray for Rachel and donate if you are able! Thank you from her family---Melissa and Jessica, Mom and Dad, and Traé ❤️
