Woman Injured In Hit-And-Run In New Orleans

September 6, 2016

Zina Jacobs Bermuda Sept 5 2016A tourist visiting New Orleans from Bermuda via a seven-day cruise recently found herself in the hospital following a hit and run incident in that city.

A WWLTV story said “A tourist in town to head on a cruise instead got a trip to the hospital when someone hit her with a truck in the Warehouse District and kept driving.

“It happened just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

“Zina Jacobs said she was crossing the street at the corner of Magazine and Julia streets. Just as she got half way, a white pick-up truck made a left turn and hit her knocking her to the ground and continued to drive away.

“It’s just surreal to me right now that somebody would hit you and just keep on going,” said Jacobs.

“Jacobs has a large gash on her forehead, teeth knocked, and bruises on the left side of her body.”

“I could hear my husband and my friends screaming and I was just trying to stay still and just keep them calm,” she recalled.

“Jacobs explained that the family was visiting from Bermuda for a seven-day cruise. They had just arrived in New Orleans earlier that day and decided to spend the few hours they had left before leaving sight-seeing.”
