June 20th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Loved ones surrounded the hospital bed of a critically injured mother of seven on Sunday night, two days after she was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, and asked her what happened.

“White Jeep,” Katherine Blann, 53, mouthed. Following the accident, Blann was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania, a week ago with major blood loss, a crushed pelvis and broken femur. Since then, Blann has been on a ventilator since the accident and remains in critical condition.

Police were able to identify a white Jeep as the suspected vehicle from surveillance video taken at about the time of the accident June 12.

A vehicle matching the description was located and searched Wednesday by crime scene technicians along with state troopers who removed “items of evidentiary value” for testing before returning the Jeep to its owner, borough police said.

No other details were provided.
