CLEVELAND– A driver has turned to the FOX 8 I TEAM for help getting justice after a hit-and-run driver slammed into her, and the incident was caught on camera.
Terry Kammer drives with a camera rolling in her car at all times. Her camera captured what happened one night last week on the Innerbelt in Cleveland.
Kammer said, “It happened so fast.” And she added, “The car next to me looked like it ricocheted off the wall and into my car. My car was wobbling, and I couldn’t steer.” The video shows the other driver hurrying off. The victim says she just got an estimate of $10,000 to repair the damage to her car.
Having the video on FOX 8 and FOX8.com may provide the best chance at getting someone to come forward with a tip and help solve this case. The I TEAM found Cleveland only has 2 detectives investigating thousands of hit-skips a year.
For instance, in 2014, Cleveland police handled 4104 reports of hit and runs. But only 285 of them were solved. And so far this year, Cleveland police have received 3,772 cases like this, and 508 have been solved.
Meantime, Terry Kammer is among the growing number of citizens we’re seeing with cameras in their cars.
“I’m really glad that I have it. I wouldn’t drive anywhere without it. I don’t feel safe anywhere,” she added.
The other driver in this case, the victim believes, may have been in a Mazda from ’07 or ’08.
