Hit-and-run victim watches driver run from scene while trapped in car



DUQUESNE, Pa. - Several people were injured after a truck slammed into an SUV, causing it to roll onto its side Monday night in Duquesne.

The crash was reported on Kennedy Street about 10 p.m. Three victims were trapped inside the SUV until emergency crews responded.

According to Amy Cardillo, she was a passenger in the car when a truck T-boned them, causing the crash.

"We were going down a regular road and the truck was flying through the alley. It didn't stop to cross and ran right into us," Cardillo said. "I remember my friend yelling something and then I remember waking up with my face against the street."

Cardillo told Channel 11's Vince Sims that the driver of the SUV and another passenger remain hospitalized.

"I kind of stood up and tried to climb out, but the car wasn't stable enough. My friend was stuck between the steering wheel and me, and my other friend was stuck in the back," Cardillo said. "I don't even know how I got out of there and how I walked away from it."

She said she saw the occupants of the truck run from the scene of the crash, but good Samaritans who witnessed the crash chased them.

"I'm thankful for them. They at least got one of them, so it helps a little bit," Cardillo said.

Duquesne police haven't filed any charges, and they're still trying to figure out who was driving the truck. The incident remains under investigation.
