LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)

Tips are now coming in for a story we first brought you last week involving a woman who lost her hand in a road rage crash.

It's not a crash that 52-year-old Pamela Price will ever forget.

"I have nightmares every time I go to sleep," says Pamela Price.

On Friday, Pamela was released from University Hospital after a more than two week stay.

It all stemmed from a Memorial Day crash.

The New Albany woman says she passed a car as she was heading westbound on Indiana 265, that then sped up and she says intentionally caused her to crash.

"There was no doubt about it. Just as soon as he pulled over in front of me he stomped his brakes on," says Pamela Price.

Pamela says the white man, who appeared to be in his mid-50's, with salt and pepper colored hair, drove away in his black Lincoln, which had Indiana license plates.

Pamela crashed and was ejected from her truck. Luckily, a nurse and man with a cooler stopped to help. Her hand had to be re-attached.

For 30 years Pamela has owned a dog-grooming business on Charlestown Road in New Albany, but now with her injuries, the business is temporarily closed.

"I loved my customers. I had great customers. Been doing their dogs for years," says Pamela Price.

Pamela says she knows it will be a long recovery process. She's just thankful she survived and is sitting here today with her family.

"I want to be there for them and watch them grow older," says Pamela Price.

She says she's thankful for the people who stopped to help her, she says when she needed it the most.

"Because otherwise I probably wouldn't be here," says Pamela Price.

Indiana State Police say, at this point, this is not a criminal case, but they would like to speak with the person who caused the crash, as well as any eyewitnesses. They say they have been receiving some tips in this case that they will soon be looking into. If you have any information, you can give Indiana State Police a call at (812) 246-5424.
