DUNCANVILLE – New surveillance footage may point investigators to a Duncanville hit-and-run driver who struck two women changing a tire and fled the scene.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office says it just discovered the video from a nearby restaurant. Investigators say they're now searching for a maroon extended-cab pickup truck with chrome wheels and wraparound headlights.

The driver hit the two women on Highway 67 and hasn't been seen since. The accident happened a week ago.

Yesterday, Steve Stoler profiled one of the victims. We've posted a segment below, read the whole thing here:

Omega Jones, who barely survived a horrific hit-and-run accident, is sending a powerful plea to the driver who kept on going.

She and two others were having problems with a wheel on their sport utility vehicle in Duncanville.

The accident left Jones with several broken bones and fractures, including her leg, ankle, wrist and clavicle.

"I'm pretty much like a newborn that has to be helped to do everything," she said, adding that she is feeling better every day.

Jones delivered an emotional message to the hit-and-run driver seen in a Duncanville police officer's dash cam video — the same driver who swerved to avoid hitting the disabled SUV, but instead slammed into the 39-year-old woman who was on the side of the road.
