A victim has come forward, following a shocking hit and run incident that occurred early July, in the Caulfield area.
The young female, tearfully recounted to media her story, in the hopes that the public could assist with the case. Victoria Police officially gave up on solving the case citing “lack of information”.
On July 5, at approximately 2:30 pm, Linsday, a 22-year-old Chinese national was crossing the road, at Bambra and Glenhuntly Roads intersection. She was struck and flung several metres in the air by an SUV turning onto Bambra rd. The car slowed briefly and then sped down Bambra rd towards Glen Eira rd. Several shocked witnesses, rushed in to prevent further injury to the victim by oncoming traffic. Police arrived on the scene, recording statements and looking for potential CCTV recordings. The victim was rushed to the Alfred Hospital suffering minor injuries.
The victim was left bedridden for a month and unable to work.
Sources close to the victim were left “shocked” and “disheartened” by the police response and one close friend was quoted as saying “they gave up before they even started and politely told us that they won’t pursue the matter. They wouldn’t even take a statement from her.”
Despite the confusion at police inaction, both friends and witnesses supported her to go public driven by the demand for justice.
The SUV is described as a “not new, not old, dark red, smaller sized Nissan SUV driven by a Caucasian lady.” The car is alleged to include ‘1GH’ in the licence plates.
The victim has urged the driver to come forward.
Everyone makes mistakes, you and I. I remember the moment the car hit me and you were terrified, too. I have endured pain and frustration over the past month, and I am sure you are filled with guilt and regret. Anyway, I know you didn’t mean it. I forgive you. But as an adult, I want you to take responsibility for your actions, for me. Many people have helped me during the past month in Australia. I love people here, including you. I hope to see this video you can go to the police station by yourself, and I’m waiting for your apology, no matter how late.
