Neighbors said they called 911 and ran for help.

The caller said that she fell from a black car.

A second caller said that he did not see how Frazier ended up on the road, but only came upon him.

“Looks like I’m guessing hit and run. Here a girl lying on the road got hit by a car,” said the caller.

The second caller said that he did not see the SUV drive, only came upon the woman in the street. Other onlookers said they saw which direction the SUV went.

According to the call, she was breathing when the other caller found her.

The caller said he had a windshield wiper near his head in the road.
