A woman in Waco was walking her dog when a driver hit her and left the scene.

According to a report from our news partners at KWTX, on Tuesday at approximately 8 PM, Alyson Oltman, 32, was walking the neighborhood in the 2300 block of Breezy Drive with her dog when a 2020 Camaro convertible hit her and left the scene.

Oltman was taken to Baylor Scott & White and suffered from a concussion, as well as scrapes and bruising. Fortunately Oltman's dog was unharmed during the incident. Those who witnessed the accident said that the driver was a black male who appeared to be in his 20's, dressed in a black tank and grey or khaki shorts.

Living in Waco, I certainly know that it can be dangerous to walk in the streets. I recommend walking in a park or an area with set walking trails. I also try to avoid taking walks after the sun sets to maintain visibility. When taking my dog out for his last potty break, I always wear bright clothing and carry a light just in case.

I feel for the Oltman family and hope that the person driving the Camaro is found and takes responsibility for his actions.
