A Delaware County family is looking for justice after their loved one was hit by a driver while she was crossing the street in front of her house.

65-year-old Cynthia McNeil was struck by a hit-and-run driver shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday November 5th on 9th Street in Chester.

Julian Williams, the fiance of McNeil's daughter, wants the driver to turn herself in.

"Mom's situation is day by day. We don't know what the extent is going to be long term. Whoever this person is we just want them to do the right thing, turn yourself in," Williams said.

McNeil's family and friends held a vigil this past weekend in an effort to get the word out.

She remains in the ICU at Crozer Chester Medical Center.

Cynthia's daughter Tammy spoke to Action News about her mother's condition.

"Two broken legs, a broken shoulder, arm, neck, back, spine, bleeding in the brain, brain damage, don't know how much," Tammy McNeil said.

Tammy shot video of the scene the night of the hit-and-run, unaware at the time that her mom was the victim.

Cynthia McNeil had parked her white SUV across from her house.

"What I believe happened was she was coming across the street, a car was speeding and hit her and kept going," Tammy McNeil said.

"A car coming westbound, going up, hit her, they turned on Barkley Street and stopped, got out of the car and hollered 'someone dial 911' and jumped into the car," Julian Williams said.

The family says no surveillance video has turned up as of yet.
