ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A 19-year-old Kennesaw State University student is in critical condition after being struck by a pickup truck while walking alongside a road in Athens.

Police say Emily Bowman of Woodstock was walking in the grass next to a roadway early Saturday morning when the truck left the road and hit her and then fled. Witnesses described the truck. Police found it a short time later, but they couldn’t find the driver.

Bowman was taken to Athens Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Her father, Dale Bowman, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution doctors removed part of his daughter’s skull to help relieve swelling. He says she’s been on a ventilator since surgery. Police say they think the driver of the truck is a 22-year-old man who isn’t cooperating with authorities.
