Food truck vendors donate portion of sales to hit-and-run victim

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Grab a bite to eat at a food truck on Main and Vine Streets anytime before 7:00 Friday night, and 10 percent of the cost will go towards the Barbara Screeney Medical Fund.

Screeney is part-owner of the 'That's How We Roll' food truck. But last November, family members say she was walking home along Old Frankfort Pike, after leaving one of her three jobs, when a car hit her.

Police still have not found the driver responsible. Screeney spent several weeks at UK Hospital, and Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, and she is still recovering from a traumatic brain injury.

Family members say numerous medical bills have been piling up since Screeney's accident. That's why the other food truck vendors in Lexington are doing what they can to help out their friend.

"I think it's nice of everybody to do this and we're going to keep doing this until hopefully she gets better," says Tracy Latham, a food truck vendor.

Food trucks will be set up until 7:00 p.m. on Friday.
