The family of Danvers-native Lindsay Bires renewed its plea on Friday for new information about the car that struck and seriously injured her a week ago.
The family of Danvers native Lindsay Bires announced on Friday they are offering $5,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest of the driver that struck her while on break as a nurse at a South Carolina hospital.
“We need the community’s help locating who this person is and who was operating the vehicle,” Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott said on Friday, according to video of the news conference posted on The State website.
“She is a great person who did not deserve this,” her sister, Lauren MacKinnon, told Danvers Patch on Friday.
She is a 2006 graduate of Danvers High School.
Bires was seriously injured at 2:25 a.m. on Sunday while on break outside Palmetto Health Heart Hospital in Columbia, S.C. A small white car struck her and she is now hospitalized in critical condition.
The car likely has damage on the front right side.
