In a follow up tweet, Colby revealed the woman is conscious and responsive.

According to Angelina N (@mozartianme), a witness on the scene, the driver of the SUV had attempted to drive away after hitting the woman.

"I was there," Angelina writes. "She tried to drive away. The lady under the car— her leg wouldn’t have gotten crushed if the lady driver immediately stopped after hitting the pedestrian. She was stopped by intersecting traffic that hit HER car."
