He has severe injuries to his leg after he was hit by a car in the parking lot of the midtown Kroger on Union Avenue more than two weeks ago.

The man said he was trying to pull into a parking spot to buy his daughter a cake for her ninth birthday, and the women in the next spot left their door open. He said he honked to tell the women in the car to close their door and that’s when it started.
“She was cursing me out.”
Police released store surveillance photos of the two women. Investigators identified a woman with braids as the driver.

“She hit me with her car… rolled over my leg.”
He says he is in severe pain, can’t sleep and has to visit the doctor frequently. His medical bills are piling up.
