MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Yvonne Rose was asleep in her Milford home when police woke her up with a knock on the door.
“They came to my door at 2:30 in the morning, and it is the worst thing that can happen to a parent,” Rose said.
Police told Rose that her daughter had been hit by a car and left for dead on Bridgeport Avenue in Milford. She has a fractured skull, broken neck, broken back and the doctors didn’t think she would make it.
“She is an absolute miracle, that she could even be alive. The doctors did not expect her to wake up,” Rose recalled.
It all happened just after Amanda Keane finished her waitressing shift at the Bridge House Restaurant. She was getting in her car when someone ran her over and left her in the middle of the road.

“The Milford police are still looking for them, looking for clues, if anybody knows anything, please call. They have had leads,” said Rose.
Rose says the car is a dark-colored 2012 to 2016 Nissan Altima, and that it’s so important to catch the driver behind the wheel because anyone who can run someone over and not stop, not call for help, not check on them must have no conscience, and who knows what else they will do to other people, the concerned mother told News 8.
“It was dark, I understand. Accidents happen. You might not of seen her. But to leave her to possibly die I don’t know how somebody could do that,” she said.
If you know a car that fits that description, you are asked to call Milford Police at 203-878-6551.
