Reeves said no injuries appeared to be life threatening, but she was transported to Troy Regional Medical Center for examination.

No one on the scene saw the driver of the vehicle involved in the hit and run, but Reeves said it was a small, red car.

Andy Ellis, employee at Troy University, was one of the first to pass the scene.

β€œI was leaving work, and I saw a girl laying in the road,” Ellis said. Troy University and Troy City Police were on scene, as well as officials from the Troy Fire Department and Care Ambulance.
