North Charleston woman calls hit and run 'intentional'

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - On Sunday's the pews at Shiloh A.M.E Church in North Charleston are packed and the parking lot is too. That means some people have to park across the street. But two Sunday's ago, a woman who parked off church property got a rude awakening.

"A gentleman came up first and told my husband someone hit his car," said a woman who asked not to be identified. "He came out and looked and there the car was all bent up pushed over the wall."

Halfway in a drainage ditch and all the way through a knee high brick barrier, their parked car was the victim of a hit and run.

"I was shocked," she said.

After calling police, the woman spotted a surveillance camera on the building next door. The camera belongs to Woody Nelson's sign shop.

"I just couldn't believe that it happened it didn't make any sense," said Nelson about the video he was watching on his computer monitor.

The camera captured all three minutes of an incident that he says seems intentional.

"It looked like at any time they could have stopped but didn't and just keep pushing it until they got the job done and left," said Nelson.

"It's beyond my imagination," said the woman. "We have no idea who did it or why it was done. We've been a member of this church for 40 years and we've never had anything like this happen in this community."

North Charleston Detectives say they have not been able to dig up any leads on the incident. The big problem, they say the security video is just far enough away so the tag number of the SUV can't be read.

The vehicle is described as a white SUV in the video is a Toyota Sequoia. If you have information on who may have done this you are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 554-1111.
