Fund set up to help woman hit by truck

May 17, 2013 

— A fund has been set up to help pay the medical expenses of a woman who was struck by a pickup Tuesday night in the Boise Towne Square mall parking lot.

A man allegedly hit the woman with his truck at around 8:45 p.m.. The woman was found laying in the parking lot with a serious leg injury, police said. She was taken to a local hospital.

The suspect also assaulted another woman earlier in the evening as she was getting into her car, police said.

If you want to offer financial help to the woman hit by the truck, contact any CapEd Federal Credit Union in the Treasure Valley and say you are contributing to the fund for Angie. Or, just say you're helping the woman who was hit at the mall.

Law enforcement is still looking for the driver, described in a Boise Police Department press release as a stocky white male, bald or with very short hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a tank top and shorts at the time of the attack, and appeared in his late 30's, police said.

The truck is described in a BPD press release as a teal-colored, possibly '90s model GMC or Chevrolet pickup truck with a sticker in the lower right rear window and Idaho license plates. It may have a slight lift, and has silver base trim, police said. The truck has a solid Tonneau-type bed cover painted the same teal color as the truck.

Anyone with information about the truck or suspect is urged to call non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790.
