Search continues for suspect in Concord hit-and-run

CONCORD (KRON)- - Getting around has been a struggle for Jillian Burgess.

She now relies on a walker while her fractured neck is in a brace and her right leg in a boot.

The 41-year-old was struck by a car while on the sidewalk alongside John Muir Hospital on East Street in Concord three weeks ago.

"According to witnesses I went flying in a somersault and landed face down," she said. "I remember the whole thing I don't think I lost consciousness but it happened very fast."

Witnesses told Burgess the car heading toward Grant Street was going too fast for the curve. 

Burgess worries a reckless driver is still at large and wants people who may spot the car to call police.

"Everytime I think about it I can't believe that actually happened," she said. " scares me that they're out there and could do this to somebody else and possibly with fatal results."

Originally a witness described the car as a blue mustang but the investigator, Officer Lawrence called the victim on Wednesday and said they traced the car’s mirror to a blue Cadillac DeVille. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Lawrence at 925-671-5097 or the anonymous tip line at 925-603-5836.

A GoFundMe account was launched to help with medical bills or expenses during her time off from work.
