CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

A fundraiser is scheduled for Friday night in southwest Charlotte to help a woman who was put in a coma by what police described as a road rage hit-and-run crash.

A driver forced Christina Morris off Interstate 485 last month.

Morris’ mother, Indian Trail town councilwoman Darlene Luther, said her daughter is going to need surgeries for her injuries.

The fundraiser will be held at the Tilted Kilt restaurant on Carowinds Boulevard at Steele Creek Road at 8 p.m.

Also, investigators urge anyone with information about the driver who caused the crash to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
