BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -- A Broken Arrow woman critically injured in a road rage incident hopes someone can lead police to the man who nearly killed her.

Cindy Scott's recovery after that wreck in April, 2009, has been painful and slow, and it's been made more difficult knowing the man responsible still hasn't been found.

The last couple of years have been tough for Cindy Scott. First, a divorce left her without health insurance. Then, a terrible wreck.

"April 21st, 2009 is the date it happened. It's a date I will never forget," said Cindy Scott, road rage victim.

Cynthia was the victim of road rage along 71st street in Broken Arrow. The driver of a black SUV, swerved in front of a jeep and angrily slammed on the brakes. That caused the jeep's driver to lose control, hitting Scott's minivan head on.

"I broke both legs, both arms, had brain surgery, lost my left eye, broke both elbows," Scott said.

While the wreck left her with major health problems and more than half a million dollars in medical bills, it also left her wondering why the man who caused the wreck never stopped to help.

"I do not understand, how anybody could do that, and take off. I don't get that at all," she said.

Scott doesn't remember the wreck, but knows a lot about recovery and how life can change in an instant.

"I love life - I love - I'm so glad to be alive I really am, but life was better before this that's for sure."

Although, quite some time has passed, but Scott is hopeful talking about what happened now will prompt someone to come forward to identify the road rage driver or that maybe the driver has remorse and will voluntarily come forward.

"He had to know that I was hurt," Cindy Scott, a woman badly injured in a road rage wreck. "Shocking that this person could live with himself."

Scott still faces many health hurdles, including surgery on her leg, and she needs knee replacement. Most of all she needs to know who is responsible.

"I want justice for him. That's exactly what I want for him," she said.

The SUV was either a Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon and had tinted windows.

This is still an ongoing investigation.  Anyone with information that could help lead to that hit and run driver, should call Broken Arrow Police at 918-259-8400.
