The car’s driver, 25-year-old Prionda C. Hill, told police she let go of the wheel shortly before the crash because “God told her he would take it from here,” according to the probable cause affidavit filed Thursday in Allen Superior Court.
Lying helplessly in the street and watching the car that just knocked him off his motorcycle bearing down on him, Anthony Oliveri was resigned to his fate.
“When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die,” he said Thursday of the July 11 crash.
He closed his eyes and the car ran over his midsection, breaking all the ribs on his left side, cutting his spleen, bruising a kidney and leaving him with road rash and severe injuries to the muscles in his left arm and leg.
As a result of the crash, Hill, of the 2100 block of Weisser Park Avenue, was charged with failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury or death, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and two counts of criminal mischief.
The criminal mischief charges stem from her car crashing into a pickup truck twice after she hit Oliveri.
Hill tested negative for alcohol but told police she had a Vicodin prescription, something that left Oliveri wondering why a full toxicology screen wasn’t ordered.
The 47 year-old victim, despite having his abdomen run over, was able to get up and make it to the curb where a pedestrian lent him a cell phone, which he used to call his mother.
You see somebody get run over, don't loan them your phone so they can call their mother. Use your phone to call an ambulance.

I know a lot of fine religious folk, my wife and parents included, and not one of them would recommend God-assisted cruise control. Let this be a cautionary tale to anyone in a similar situation — letting 'God take the wheel' is a freakin' metaphor.

It seems the driver wasn't the only one who was a little off, here. You see somebody get run over, don't loan them your phone so they can call their mother. Use your phone to call an ambulance.
