Woman Killed In Hit-and-Run With Three Different Cars
(Memphis) Memphis police are looking for drivers involved in a deadly hit and run on Winchester at Cazassa.
The victim was not hit once, but three times by three different cars.
Even more sad, none of those drivers stopped to help.
“I walked out the door because I saw all of the commotion,” said Rafeal Mitchell saw the aftermath of the tragic hit and run.
Memphis police say three different cars hit 43-year-old Dinah Springfield and kept driving.
“It’s messed up,” said Mitchell. “The sad thing is, that’s somebody’s mama, you know?”
Investigators say Springfield was crossing Winchester Tuesday evening when she was hit by a white Pontiac Bonneville, then was hit by a white van that dragged her a short distance before things got even worse.
Springfield was then hit by a third car, possibly a jaguar and all three kept going.
She was taken to The MED where she died.
“If you hit someone, you should have the heart enough to stop,” Frank Ford who knew Springfield. “The people that hit her don’t have a heart and that’s just sad.”
While police work with the leads they have, Mitchell hopes whoever did this turns themselves in and this tragedy serves as a reminder about the dangers of crossing a major street.
“When you’re crossing the street at night and it’s raining, people can hardly see you,” said Mitchell. “I’ve seen that for myself. You can hardly see anybody.”
But for all three drivers to leave the scene, Mitchell says, there is no excuse, “Justice needs to brought, for real though.”
