A Portland woman is slowly recovering after a hit-and-run driver slammed into her while she was riding her bike.

Hannah Davison said she suffered a broken orbital bone, facial lacerations, a broken shoulder and a cracked vertebrae in the crash at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10. She required reconstructive surgery to repair her eye socket and the deep cuts in her face.

“I definitely went over the top of the car. So there’s a pretty solid impact with the ground, afterward, so there was kind of a double hitter of I hit the car and hit the ground,” said Davison.

Davison was riding her bike home from her job downtown along North Skidmore when she was hit. 

The Portland Police Bureau is investigating the crash. Officers found the suspect’s vehicle, but not the suspect.

Davison said she’s happy she escaped the crash with her life, but would also like to see the person responsible for her injuries come forward.

“Be a human being and accept that there was an accident. It happened,” said Davison. “Just own up to your mistake.”

Davison said she has racked up over $50,000 in medical expenses. Her friends have started a GoFundMe account to help her pay some of the bills.
