Woman lets acquaintance go after hit by car



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — After she was struck by a car, a women “let the driver go” because she apparently knew her.

The woman said she was hit March 22 in the Publix parking lot off Mathis Airport Parkway while she was walking to another business. She said the driver was very apologetic and the woman said she was fine. She let the driver go because she “kind of knew who the driver was.”

After a while, the 35-year-old woman said she felt a tingling in her wrist running up her forearm, so she called the sheriff’s office to file a report.

The woman knew the name and phone number of the driver, but didn’t know her birthday or license plate number. Deputies called the number and didn’t receive a response until later when a woman called back and said no one at that home drove a car that fit the one in the incident.
