LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---Day by day, Mike Shea and John Tolliver continue to recover from a serious crash in Hillview in late July.
I don't remember them. I don't remember the accident to tell you the truth, from my head injury and everything," says John Tolliver.
The two men and a friend were riding motorcycles on Brooks Hill Road, when police say a car failed to yield to oncoming vehicles and struck the men.
Police say the owner of the car, Wendy Dishman of Clarksville, Indiana, stayed with the car while the actual driver took off on foot.
Police believe she gave them incorrect information about the true identity of the driver, whom they know was a man. She was charged with hindering prosecution or apprehension.
"She didn't have to be charged with hindering. All she had to do is give a name and this charge would never have been there," says Mike Shea.
Now, crash victim Mike Shea says new information he received from the Bullitt County Attorney's office could change everything in the search for the driver.
He says Dishman claims she's receiving threats and that a motion is expected to be made in court on Friday morning to put a gag order on the case.
If this were to happen, the victims may not be able to talk about some or all aspects of the case to the public or media.
"I hate that you've gotten threats, but I hate more that you won't tell us who this guy is," says Mike Shea.
We tried to contact the County Attorney's office about the matter. Our phone calls were not returned. Hillview Police say they'll soon have their own meeting on Thursday morning with the Bullitt County Attorney's Office, but did not know what would be discussed.
Police say, should a gag order be put in place on Friday, it will not stop their investigation to find the driver. The crash victims are still hoping, in the meantime, someone will turn him in.
"I don't think he ought to go to jail for the rest of his life, but he needs to man up and face what he did," says John Tolliver.
Meanwhile, authorities continue to ask for your help in this case. If you know who the driver was in this crash, they ask you to call Hillview Police at 502-955-6808.
