“I just saw one of the little girls yelling ‘Help!’ and one of the moms down on the ground and came running and he was face down in the road… He’s doing well, all things considered by the grace of God he’s doing well,” said the victim’s mother Alison Love.

Deputies started searching for a white, 4-door Lexus CT200, 2016/2017 model year with a black stripe and an either damaged or broken passenger side mirror.

Miller, 49, was driving the vehicle and told the deputy that the damage occurred when she was backing out of her garage but could not tell him when that happened or when the mirror was repaired with duct tape.

Love said she is dismayed by the apparent facts of the case.

“We’re trying to teach (my son) the right thing to do in life and I want him to grow up not having poor faith in mankind,” she told CBS4.

The damage to the vehicle and duct tape repair job could be seen during the traffic stop on Tuesday night.
