Surveillance Video Shows Hit And Run Victim Before Incident

On late Monday evening, 56-year-old Kathy Salisbury was hit in Harrodsburg as she was out walking along College Street.

She was then dragged for a block to West Office Street and Park, where police discovered her laying in the street. The driver was nowhere to be found.

Salisbury could only tell police a "big, loud truck" hit her. That was the last thing she has been able to tell police or her family.

Family members of Salisbury say she continues to remain in critical condition at UK Hospital undergoing multiple surgeries.

She had numerous injuries including to her hands, arms, back, and legs. She also had internal injuries and had to have her spleen removed.
