DOVER, De..- It was a sunny Sunday evening when Casey Stanhope was finishing up her run.

"I had my phone in my hand to turn off my GPS for my running app and just out of nowhere the car had come by and hit my elbow," Stanhope said. "It felt like my whole right side of my body but it was just my elbow."

She was near her home in the area of Kenton and West Denny's roads near Dover when a car crossed over the line and hit her.

"I doubled over and screamed obviously," she said. "It hurt pretty bad and I looked up and they never, it was a white sedan or two door, they just kept going. They never hit their brakes."

The driver didn't stick around, but Delaware State Police found the black driver's side mirror belonging to the white car that hit Stanhope.

"We're keeping our eyes peeled," Stanhope said. "It was a white sedan. They said based on the part number of the mirror, when they looked it up it was probably either going to be a Toyota, a Nissan or a Subaru."

Her mother, Dianna Ferris, is worried the end of race weekend means the suspect may be gone.

"I'm very concerned it is somebody who is out of town and we won't be able to find them," Ferris said. "We put it out on Facebook. We know that it's the white car, either the Nissan, the Subaru or Toyota."

The family is in disbelief the driver never even stopped.

"The fact that they didn't hesitate, they didn't hit the brakes at all they just kept going, the fact that they didn't hesitate just blows my mind," Stanhope said. "I wouldn't be able to be OK with myself knowing I hit a human."

Stanhope has several broken bones in her right arm. She is hoping to have surgery to repair her injuries this week.
