Channel 2′s Tyisha Fernandes spoke with a woman who says she witnessed the tragedy. She said she saw the woman fall out of a car at the intersection of Piedmont Road and Peachtree Road.
“Just left her on the ground. Me and my boyfriend were just waving down cars so they wouldn’t hit the people that were trying to resuscitate her,” the woman, who did not want to be identified, told Fernandes.
While she says she didn’t know the victim at all, she felt the need to come back to the scene on Tuesday and bring flowers to set up a small memorial.

Friends say the voice heard on the newly released video belongs to the victim.
“Call the cops, call the cops! I just got robbed... there’s cameras in there... my ID, my card, everything,” the woman can be heard shouting.
Her friends say the video was taken outside of the Buckhead restaurant she works at, accusing the driver of the Lamborghini of stealing her wallet. But her friends say it was more than a wallet, it was a family heirloom.

“Humans are so ignorant because they do these lifeless careless acts, and they don’t even understand this was a human being,” the woman who witnessed the incident said.
No one has been charged in connection to her death.
