Case opened after woman knocked by blue light car

At that stage, I said I don't know as I am waiting for the assessor... But when I look at the car, I can see it's going to be quite a lot, maybe that's why they are taking time.

Lana, caller

I'm not to sure whether I just wait or do I do a follow up...

Lana, caller

Barnett says she's been getting a lot of criticism for calling the radio station and for putting her name out in the media.

They said to me why are you doing this, why are you putting your name out there. People might come for you...

Lana, Caller

What comes to mind is the age old quote: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". What happens if they kill somebody next time?

Lana, caller

Barnett says she will be following up on her case with the station commander.
