A Riverhead native remains in critical condition after a hit and run accident in Tampa, Fla. one month ago today as police continue to hunt for the driver of a red pickup truck.

Ashley Johnson, 23, was struck by the truck June 6 while crossing a major highway in Tampa about 11:45 p.m., according to a report.

Channel 10 News in Tampa reported last night Ms. Johnson, a Riverhead High School graduate, can only communicate by blinking her eyes. Ms. Johnson remains at Kindred Hospital in Tampa.

Ms. Johnson’s mother, Kimberly Mullen, pleaded for the driver who struck her daughter to come forward.

  • I myself only make about 40k a yr. I do anything I am able to to carry on to that 40k per 12 months Job . AND if I had been ever in trouble I’ve usually recognised I’m able to appear to my friends and family who on ordinary make about what I do. Government hand is there to assistance to not run our lives. Of course we now have to obey the laws that we have been government by but we are able to also chance people law as properly. Now as significantly as this election, Romney would be the guy to vote for and this really is why I say this, Yes he is a Small business male, he also is a devoted guy to what he believes in,He make it a position to do every little thing he established out to perform. He doesn’t make bogus statements to impress the people today, BUT when he see the issues that need to have fixing he will fix them , he may not be popular aided by the Governing administration with his decisions that he will make but he will probably be working within the finest interest for that People. Not making us lazy, and have our hands out ,,, You will be astonished what can happen when persons are produced accountable for their owe issues, And should they never understand how to get again for the self reliant wagon, They can be plenty of folks out there that are eager to teach other (devoid of expecting a hand out themselves for helping.).
