A Prescott Valley woman remains in serious condition after being hit by a truck in downtown Flagstaff early Sunday morning.

22-year-old Stephanie Gonzalez was speaking to an uber driver around 1:40 a.m. near the corner of Aspen Avenue and Leroux Streer when she was struck by a truck. The driver allegedly tried to leave the scene but was stopped by two witnesses who used their vehicles to box him in.

Gonzalez was rushed to Flagstaff Medical Center with severe injuries to her head and body. She suffered a broken hip, ribs and clavicle, and her medical expenses are quickly racking up. Her family has made a Gofundme page at www.gofundme.com/stephanies-recovery-expenses to collect donations as she endures a long road to recovery.

Flagstaff resident Kasey McDermaid, 20, was taken into custody on suspicion of hit and run. Officers are awaiting blood test results to determine if McDermaid was driving intoxicated when the collision occurred.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
