Police release video of violent hit and run at Walmart in hopes of catching the driver

AUSTIN, Texas— The Austin Police Department is searching for the person responsible for a violent hit and run.

Police released the shocking surveillance video that shows a truck plowing over a woman in the parking lot of a Walmart gas station.

The woman appears to be looking down, seemingly unaware that a big truck was coming right at her.

That’s when the  dark pick-up turns and slams head-on into the woman.

The driver didn’t stop, but luckily a witness jumped into action.

The woman is now in the hospital, fighting for her life.

Police are hoping this video can help catch the hit-and-run driver before another pedestrian suffers the same fate.
