Lufkin, TX – A Lufkin family is still in recovery months after a hit-and-accident that occurred in May. KTRE News reported that four members of the family survived the hit-and-run crash, but were left with serious injuries.


Margaret Hodge, who was one of the passengers in the accident, said to the news source “My son hollered, 'Oh my God! Hold on!…By the time I looked up, I just saw the truck coming. There was nothing we could do.”


Hodge further stated of the injuries she sustained “I had two cracked ribs. I had bruised ribs, a sprained arm, a hole put in my leg which was an inch deep.”


The family says the actions of the other driver have added to their emotional grief after the head on collision. Says Hodge “He totaled us out. He got out of his car, looked at us, then took off on foot… What really hurt me is how can you come over there and see that situation and walk off without knowing if anyone was going to survive it.”


It was not clear from the report if police had yet located the driver of the other vehicle.
