DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -

A 30-year-old woman dragged herself to the median and called 911 after a pickup truck struck her bicycle as she peddled to work at Denny's in Daytona Beach.

Shariema Smith told the Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/18RQL6a ) on Monday that all she could think about was her 11-year-old daughter in the moments after the crash on Friday morning. She remembers thinking, "Lord please don't let me die today."

She says immediately after the crash the driver of the pickup truck walked over, said he was sorry and asked if she was OK. Then, he got into his truck and drove away.

That's when she dragged herself to the median and called 911.

She broke her neck and pelvis and shattered her knee cap.

Police are still looking for the driver.
