Police Searching for Driver Who Hit Woman and Left Her to Die

JACKSONVILLE, Ark -- The Jacksonville Police Department says a car slammed into a woman walking down a road on Wednesday night and left her to die.

Amanda Lingo, 36, was walking near the 500 block of Valentine Road when she was hit by a car.

Police say two people found her unconscious and barely breathing.

Brenda Lingo, Amanda's mother, said the impact nearly broke all of the bones in her daughter's upper body and has left her in a coma.

"Lives matter ... fellow men matter ... how can you do that to your fellow men," said Brenda.

Amanda has undergone two successful surgeries. Police ask anyone who might know something about the hit-and-run to give them a call.
