A 29-year-old woman is fighting for her life in intensive care, after a hit-and-run incident in Sydney’s south-west.

And it happened in front of her three children.

Jack Gramenz reporting.


Mariam Daoud was crossing a road outside a Bass Hill childcare centre when she was struck by a black Subaru.

The driver didn’t even stop to help, leaving the victim lying badly hurt.

David Daoud, Victim’s Relative: “Just very shocked to see that someone with no heart can actually hit someone and run off.”

Mariam’s teenage son witnessed the incident and relatives are now concerned for his welfare.

Ali Jnaidy: “When I see her I am going to give her a hug and kiss her and never let her cross the road ’cause I don’t want anything bad to happen again.”

Police say the mother-of-three suffered head injuries as well as leg, elbow and pelvic fractures.

A 26-year-old woman has been charged with failing to stop, causing grievous bodily harm, and negligent driving.
