MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A woman was critically injured Sunday night by a hit-and-run driver.

Investigators said Ashley Bielmas was hit around 11:30 at Raines Road and Clarke Road.

A woman who was in a car that Bielmas was driving told officers they got into an argument. She said Bielmas pulled the car into a turning lane, got out, and was hit by another vehicle.

A police report indicated that Bielmas was thrown into another lane of traffic.

Investigators found a Porsche emblem near the scene and tagged it as evidence. The vehicle believed to have hit Bielmas was described as gray or black.

Bielmas was taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Her neighbor, Danny Young, was surprised when law enforcement pulled into their Raleigh neighborhood asking for Bielmas' next of kin.

“I guess I was in shock,” Danny Young said. “I still hate that all this happened to her."
