Hit-and-run victim moving to rehab facility, search continues for driver

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - "It's a nightmare. It's a constant nightmare," said Susan Bires. "It's just constant emotional pain. If you could imagine the most emotional pain you could possibly be in and still function, that's what we live with every day."

Every day for almost a month, Susan and Mark Bires have waited and worried. Surrounded by support, their 24-year old daughter Lindsay still fights.

"When they do rehab at the hospital you can see her trying," said her mother. "The will is there."

The 24-year-old nurse was on her break outside of Palmetto Health Richland Hospital when she was hit by what police described as a small, white car.

It happened around 3 a.m. on September 16th. In the time since, her family and police have been looking for answers.

"It would just help us in the healing process for someone to step up and say, 'I'm sorry, I take responsibility,'" said Susan Bires.

The Bires say their anger is tempered by the small improvements Lindsay has made.

Soon she'll be moved to a rehab facility out of state where doctors say it could take two years to fully recover.

Her parents hold out hope for the piece of information that could lead to the car that hit her and its driver.

"It's been too long the person that did this needs to step forward and take responsibility," said Mark Bires. "She's already lost a month of her life."

"She's laying in a comatose state and we just don't have any answers," said Susan Bires.

There is still a $5,000 reward for any information leading to that car or its driver. If you know something that could help, call Crimestoppers at 1 -888-Crime SC.
