A hit and run attack against woman in the parking lot of Jordan Valley Hospital.

Nine weeks pregnant, Andrea Deporto showed up in the hospital parking lot for her first check-up. But as she got out of her car, a truck suddenly slammed into her side, squishing her legs and pushing her against the side of her car.

Question: "Did the driver of the truck see you?"

Andrea Deporto, hit by truck: "I was slamming his truck, and I stood up and yelled at him. He stopped for a second. I think he saw me, but he drove away."

She thought she got a glimpse of the license plate, but a police check of it led to a trailer, not the truck.

Andrea Deporto: "(He) was a white male with dark brown hair, and a large, I think it was a silver, like a big pickup truck."

Police says Andrea is now doing just fine.
