WHITSETT, N.C. -- A teenage girl is recovering at Moses Cone Hospital after highway patrol officials said she was injured in a hit-and-run crash in Whitsett.

Samantha Roberts, 17, was struck while walking with a friend along Rock Creek Dairy Road around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, according to officials.

Sergeant Doug Growman said the car involved is believed to be a green 4-door Honda Accord.

"The right rear view mirror of the car struck the girl on the left elbow with enough force to knock the mirror off the car," Growman said.

Roberts's mother, Donna Reynolds, said her daughter is in a lot of pain with a broken arm and broken pelvis.

"I have had anger behind it, I'm going to try to be very understanding, but it's very hard when you're looking at your child hurt," Reynolds said.

Roberts is listed in stable condition.

Troopers ask anyone with information toward the investigation to come forward.
