Police recover hit and run vehicle
Rochester, N.Y. - Rochester Police have an important lead into the Clifford Avenue hit and run from Wednesday morning.
They have recovered the suspect vehicle from the incident, a 2007 midnight blue Chrysler Aspen.
Mary Moore, 41, the victim of the hit and run, was biking toward Goodman Street when she was hit from behind.
Police said she was dragged under the vehicle at least 100 feet.
She was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with life threatening injuries.
Moore's mother, Loretta Brown, is demanding the driver to come forward.
"If they were bold enough to hit my daughter, they should be bold enough to turn themselves in instead of running like a coward," said Brown.
Doctors told Brown her daughter's life is still in the danger zone. Moore has severe injuries across her body, including her head, spine, tailbone and pelvis.
"Why would they flee instead of stopping and seeing what they hit? Maybe call 911 and wait and let justice take its course," said Brown.
Area businesses told 13WHAM the entire ordeal was captured on camera, and the surveillance video has been turned into investigators for evidence.
Rochester Police are asking witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.
As of Friday night, Moore was in guarded condition.
