RALEIGH (WTVD) --A 30-year old Raleigh mother was the victim of a hit-and-run Monday morning as she was traveling eastbound on I-540 just past Capital Blvd. Na'Kol Curtis says an 18-wheeler crossed over into her lane and dragged her 1997 Honda Civic into the median. The accident sent her to the hospital with several cuts and bruises.
"My car is totaled. And I'm a single mom, I'm doing everything I can. I only have liability. So GEICO said it's kind of like my fault, well it's not my fault, but it's on me at this point", she told ABC11.
Curtis said the driver of the flatbed did not stop as she was dragged across the highway, but pulled over several hundred yards away to inspect his truck. His lack of concern, she says, left her in tears. "It's like how do you...you knew something happened because you stopped. And it's like you didn't even come back to see if I was OK," she questions as she recounts her terrifying experience.
The single mother of one said the car is from the Wheels 4 Hope program which is designed to provide transportation for financially-challenged individuals and families. Curtis says her family and friends have been supportive during this time.
ABC11 reached out to Highway Patrol and they have listed the incident as a hit-and-run, but was unable to provide any other information. Curtis is asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the Highway Patrol to report what happened.
