NASHVILLE, Tenn (WTVF) — Left for dead, that's how a Nashville woman has described what happened to her on Easter Sunday. Kirsten Beverly was running some afternoon errands in Bellevue until the unthinkable happened, she says car slammed right into her car and drove off.

“I was completely blindsided, completely thrown off, [I] didn't even see the car in my view at all,” said Beverly.

The college senior said it happened in a split second; she was just driving down Old Hickory boulevard, and she said the car shot out of a parking lot and hit the middle of her car rolling her car several feet.

“I flipped about three or four times and slid down the road several hundred feet before stopping on curb,” Beverly said she was left for dead.

“To know that they just left was probably the most inhumane thing that anybody has like ever done to.”

Beverly thanks her seat belt for saving her life, but she did sustain some injures to left side of her body and a second degree burn on her arm from the airbag.

“For me to get in one [crash] this serious and for that person to just drive through me and not stopped is heartbreaking,” Beverly said.

Beverly believes the car that hit her was a white Honda with extensive front end damage.

In the meantime, she wants the driver caught and off the streets.

“Clearly this person wasn't in their right mind, they weren't paying attention,” Beverly said.

Beverly says the driver was leaving the parking lot of this pizza restaurant, so she's asking nearby businesses to check their surveillance video.
