At around 6pm on Friday, May 15th the daughter of Nita Tanner from Ms. T's Southern Fried Chicken, Bijan Choya Early, was deliberately struck with the car of a man posing as a Grubhub driver, who was asked to wait outside the restaurant due to Covid-19 guidelines.
The driver fled the scene and eventually turned himself in. Grubhub issued a statement that they are cooperating with police. You can read more information here about the hit and run.
Bijan will be in the hospital for a few months recovering in their rehab unit. She's gone through multiple surgeries and has fought for her life.
Anyone that knows Bijan and Ms. T knows that they are some of the most kind people in the Lakeview East Community. We want to do whatever it takes to help their family during this time.
The Lakeview East Community Partnership is gathering donations for Bijan and Ms. Tanner's family for any extraordinary expenses they might incur during this time. The fundraiser is approved by the family and we are in communication with them. 100% of the proceeds will go to the family.
