Help Dave after horrific hit & run

On Tuesday 11/21, our friend Dave Buzzotta was involved in what began as a minor traffic incident and evolved into a hit and run in which he sustained major injuries.
In Dave’s own words... “I was a victim of hit and run where an older woman with gray shoulder length hair in a white 4 door smallish sedan veered into the outer left turn lane (where I was being a 2 turn left) from the inner left lane she was in turning left onto Cahuenga from Barham at @1/1:20pm on Tuesday and forced me to veer to the curb. We both stopped, I approached her to exchange info and she started to take off. I said "I no, no" and held into her half open window, when she gunned it. I was hanging on the side of her car by the open window at 40 miles an hr. I started to scream and beg her to stop. I said I'm going to die and you're killing me repeatedly and she sped up where I could no longer hang on and she ran over my feet which are fractured and broken along with...”
Dave is back in the hospital right now and we have few other details but will update as we get more information.
Dave had just opened in a show at Theatre 40 and we, his friends and colleagues from the show, are reaching out to you to help.
Dave’s immediate concern is for his car which is in impound. In the longer term, he will face mounting medical bills, rehabilitation, help with bills during his recovery and who knows what else.
Dave is an amazing guy - this is shocking and horrifying. We hope you can help.
Thank you!
