Thomasville hit-and-run case remains unsolved

THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- It's been two years since a Thomasville woman was nearly killed when she was hit walking across a street. Tanya Lewis Morris, 25, was crossing Church Street to go home when investigators say a speeding car came down the street, hit her and took off.

"I just want to know why did you hit me and keep going?" said Morris.  "How do you sleep at night?"

It's estimated Morris was thrown about 50 feet after being hit. The 27-year-old still deals with chronic pain and walks with a limp after a lot of physical therapy and 9 surgeries to rebuild her shattered leg.

"I have forgave them, but I won’t forget," said Morris who wants closure with the driver coming forward. "Never take life for granted because you could be gone tomorrow."

The only description of a possible suspect vehicle is a small, light blue or silver sedan.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call (336) 476-8477.
