We are still looking for the SUV responsible for the  Hit and Run accident involving  Laura Graff and her  motorcycle which took place on the evening of September 23, 2006 at 7:00 pm.

 

What the  Video was about:

 

• Description On the evening of September 23, 2006 at 7:00 pm, Glendale firefighters responded to a car and motorcycle crash involving Laura Graff, a 24-year-old Glendale woman.

 

She was riding her motorcycle at 59th Avenue and Mercer Lane in Glendale Arizona. They found Graff barely clinging to life from the severe injuries caused by hit and run driver. The driver of the vehicle that hit Laura fled the scene. This footage was the first reporting of the event and a call for witnesses to help locate this driver. This driver remains unidentified.

 Unlike a traditional television newscast, this production with it's call for information narrated by Glendale Police PIO Matt Barnett, still remains online shadowing the perpetrator... someday they will be identified. Laura Graff survived and is undergoing therapy to overcome the effects of her injuries. You may also see the ceremony whereas she awarded the fire  fighters, ambulance drivers and hospital trauma personal for helping save her life in an article  at http://www.glendaledailyplanet.com/ .
