Crime Stopped is offering a $5000 reward

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information after an 18-year-old was critically injured when she was dragged several blocks by a hit-and-run driver who is still on the run.

Her family tells NBC 5 it all started with a minor accident Friday evening along the border of Dallas and Duncanville near Camp Wisdom and Clark Road.

Anna Marie Taleao was driving, Jorge Villegas the passenger -- he says, while attempting to exchange information the other driver took off.

"While storming off, she ran into Anna and she basically had her on the hood of the car after she hit her, for basically all of Clark Road up until 408 she was dragging Anna, trying to get her off," said Villegas.

Taleao remains in critical condition at Methodist Dallas Medical Center. Her family says her injuries are extensive -- from broken bones, to a punctured lung.

Investigators say the vehicle was a white SUV, possibly a Mazda or Nissan. If you have any information you're asked to call Dallas Police.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment. Call Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS, the hotline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
