VIDEO: Daughter of hit and run victim demanding justice

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The daughter of a woman who was seriously injured in a hit and run incident is demanding justice.

Charleston Police say 44 year old Sharline James was struck by a car last Friday night at the intersection of King and Simons Streets.

Investigators say the car involved in the incident, a Dodge Challenger, was found Wednesday night.

Police are not revealing how the vehicle was found or where it was found. They say releasing that information will harm the investigation.

James' daughter says her mom and her mom's fiance' were on their way to a crab crack just before the hit and run.

"She was crossing the street and the next thing you know, they said they heard a big boom," said Sierra Scott.

James was knocked to the ground.

Her daughter found out what happened early Saturday morning.

"When I went to the hospital, all I wanted to do was cry and cry."

Scott says her mom suffered serious head injuries and had her second surgery today.

"I'm glad she's still alive, but I just wish this never happened at all."

Scott says she wants the person who hit her mom to come forward and face charges.

"I just want him to turn himself, turn herself in. Whoever it is, turn yourself in."

Anyone with information on a possible suspect should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
