Injured Chester siblings plea for answers in crash

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chester brother and sister are for the first time sharing with us what has been their nightmare for the last three weeks.

The hope is someone will come forward with information about the crash early last month that nearly killed Taylor Fee and left his sister Jessica struggling with physical and emotional pain.

When Jessica Fee replays that fateful night on Old Bermuda Hundred Road, she can't help but cry.

"To see my brother like this and to see my brother after the accident lying across my lap and not breathing...it's the worst feeling," said Jessica Fee.

Jessica said a small silver car came up behind her brother's truck fast then passed illegally.      

They hit a tree, knocking Taylor unconscious.

Neither was wearing a seatbelt.  

Jessica is angry several cars passed before two people stopped to help.

"So I had to climb on top of the windowsill to pull myself out to help my brother cause I didn't want him to die," said Jessica.

Taylor doesn't remember the crash. But said it's heart-wrenching to see his sister like this.

"It's very hard for me. I see her struggling every day and all the pain she's in. It's very hard," said Taylor.

Taylor calls his own survival, a miracle. Three weeks ago he was in intensive care with a traumatic brain injury. Now he's walking.

"Walking was a hard balance and stuff," said Taylor.

Jessica can't even go to the bathroom without help. 

"I know whoever did it doesn't want to come forward but I won't be able to walk for at least six months," said Jessica.

A big blow for the 18-year-old holding the Miss Chesterfield County Fair crown.

Her state pageant is this weekend. Nothing will stop her wearing this gown on stage.

"I was so excited about it and I was ready for it and practicing for it. I don't want to just stop because of an accident. I feel I can still do my best even in a wheelchair," said Jessica.

Taylor may not return to Radford until this fall.

Right now, both just want closure.

"We didn't ask for this at all, we did not ask for this," said the siblings.

Taylor and Jessica also want to thank the Chester community for pulling together for them.

They're also grateful for the neighbor who stepped up with a $1,000 reward in this case.

Tomorrow, Chesterfield Police will feature this crash as its crime of the week through Crime Solvers.

Call 748-0660, if you have any information about the other car or driver.
