Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The family of hit-and-run victim Lindsay Bires is now offering a $15,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Last September, Columbia Police say Lindsey Bires was hit by a car while standing on the sidewalk at Palmetto Health. They say a small, white car ran off the side of the road at least twice before making impact with the victim.

Bires worked as a nurse at Palmetto Health. After she spent weeks recovering locally, her family moved her back to her home state of Massachusetts.

Crimestoppers also is offering a $1,000 reward, bringing the total amount to $16,000. Police say they are looking for a a small white, rounded vehicle like a honda or toyota.

Columbia Police tell News19 that while the accident is still under investigation they have not been able to have any luck with the hospital's surveillance cameras.

"The surveillance video is on a motion system. It pans automatically. So at the time that this accident is occurring, the camera was looking in a different direction," said Sgt. William Pegram.

Susan Bires says her daughter is out of the coma, but remains in constant pain. She says they are still seeking justice for their their daughter.

"Somebody has radically and drastically has changed her life and not for the better. She really wants to see somebody held responsible for all the pain and injury they've caused her. She's got a long long road ahead of her," said Bires.

Columbia Police are encouraging anyone who may have information about the accident to call Crimestoppers. That number of course is 1-888-CRIME-SC.
