Hit and run caught on tape

A 60-year-old woman is still recovering after being struck by a car at a Wal-mart parking lot in Bayou Vista.

Just after the woman was hit, the driver hit the gas and struck another pedestrian. Then, the driver sped away.

It's something you'll only find on video taken from Wal-mart security cameras show the driver speeding through a cross-walk and hitting 60-year-old Palma Dehart. 

As of Tuesday evening, Dehart is still in the hospital and the driver, still on the run.

Police say they're looking for a black male in his teens to mid-twenties. He was wearing a white T-shirt and a red cap at the time of the hit and run.

St. Mary Parish Deputies believe the car is stolen from the Thibodaux area. It's a Black 1997 Nissan Maxima with Louisiana tags: SAD 028

If you have any information regarding the suspect or the vehicle, contact the St. Mary Sheriff's Office Detective Division at (985) 384-1622.
