TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) - Do you recognize this woman in the Smart car?

On Friday, July 2, the woman in the Smart car was backing up through the Super 1 parking lot and ran over a 70-year-old woman who was walking to her car, according to the Texarkana Texas Police Department.

“The woman was dragged several feet under the car before the driver puts the car in drive and drives off,” reads a Facebook post.

“There is little doubt that the woman couldn’t have known that she ran over something and it even appears to be checking her side mirror as she drives away — leaving the elderly victim laying in the middle of the driveway.”

We need some help... Anyone recognize this vehicle or the woman driving it? On July 2nd, this woman was backing up...
