A 54 year old Florida woman is recovering from two broken leg after a car reportedly hit her as she was crossing the street Friday morning in Boca Raton.
The victim, Cynthia DuVoisin, was crossing a intersection on Palmetto Road and Calibre Court, when a four-door sedan slammed into her, according to her mother
Martin told Channel 5 News about her daughters condition: “She’s got braces on both legs, she’ll have to go through extensive therapy, It was broad daylight. There was no reason for her to hit my daughter.”
Now here is the strange part of the story, Martin said her daughter told her the driver, who is a female nurse, drove her home with the two broken legs and then promised to return with her personal information, but never returned.
“I cannot imagine leaving someone like that, and not knowing whether they’re alright or they’re not alright,” said Martin.
DuVoisin’s brother, Chris, said he thinks the driver took advantage of his sister’s condition.
“I think her initial instinct was to help my sister, who she had hit, but then she got to thinking about the ramifications, the liability,” he said. “When my sister asked for her contact information, it was probably very easy for her to say, ‘You know what, that woman can’t walk.’”
