That really gets to me," Davis said. She is an active mother of five children.She was holding a "stop, slow" sign at a work zone near 11th and Lynn Lane when the driver struck her.Davis said she does not remember much from the crash but she can recall seeing her boots lying down the road after the impact. Others have told her the driver of the F-150 truck stopped to tell one of her coworkers about her injury but then took off.Davis said she feels anger towards the man and she wants him to witness the physical therapy she has to go through.Police have not yet made any arrests. They are asking that residents call in tips about the driver to Crimestoppers.The city of Tulsa is asking that drivers pay attention to work zones, especially in the summer months.
