Thomasville, NC-- Tanya Lewis was changed forever when a car hit her while she was crossing the street in 2011. Police are still searching for a suspect.

On March 7, 2011, shortly after midnight, Tanya Lewis was hit by a car on Church Street near Forsyth Street in Thomasville.

"I don't remember the car hitting me. All I remember, I was coming across the street and I dropped something and I reached down to pick it up and that's all I remember," explained Tanya.

Tanya's family watched from the front porch as a car plowed into her. She flew fifty feet and landed between the sidewalk and the road.

Tanya said, "One of my doctors told me that from Thomasville to Winston, they had to bring me back to life three times and I had two collapsed lungs."

Tanya's left leg broke in four places. She has four rods in that leg, screws in her ankle and plates and screws in her pelvis.

Police are looking for any information about this hit and run collision. They gave News 2 this information about the vehicle: small to midsize sedan, missing the driver's side door mirror.

If you have any information about this collision or about the vehicle, contact Thomasville Police Traffic Safety Unit at (336)475-4205 or call Thomasville Crime Stoppers at (336)476-8477. Crime Stoppers pay cash rewards up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest.

She told WFMY News 2's Liz Crawford that rehab was one of the hardest challenges but she walked down the aisle this past June on her wedding day.

Although, she's come a long, she still has questions about that night two years ago.

Tanya said, "I was enraged because you hit me but you kept going. I mean how do you sleep at night?"
