Woman in intensive care after hit-and-run; family seeks tips

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

A young woman is in the hospital in intensive care. She was just crossing the street early Sunday morning on 7 Mile between Fairport and JoAnn in Detroit when she was hit by a car that didn't stop. Now, her family is hoping someone will come forward with information to help police catch the hit-and-run driver.

The victim, Margaret Waleed, 24, had just been accepted into graduate school. She was out celebrating with friends around 1:30am Sunday when she went to get something from her car and was hit.

"Margaret is a strong person," says her cousin, Christine Hamiel. "She's always been strong since she's been little so for me to see her like that it hurt me because I was there."

Hamiel was right by Waleed's side after the hit-and-run. She saw the driver speed off leaving her cousin helpless and injured in the road. Her fiance tells Fox 2 she has two broken legs and a fractured pelvis. She also suffered a severed artery that was repaired. The couple plans to get married in 2015.

Witnesses believe the car involved is a dark green Ford Explorer with a weather strip on the hood. The SUV should have damage to the front passenger side. The family is offering $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. You can also call Detroit Police or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.
