Charlotte, NC:

The victim in a hit-and-run that was caught on tape talked to Eyewitness News on Monday about the incident. “I know God had my back, that’s all I know,” Shaun Lewis said. “God was looking out for me.” Lewis said he feels blessed to be alive after he was hit by a car on his way to work. Surveillance video captured the incident. In the video, you see Lewis running across Tuckaseegee Road. Then the video shows headlights. Lewis turns around and a car hits him, knocking him onto the windshield and throwing him into the air. The driver stops, gets out, then he gets back in and drives off. After about six minutes, you see Lewis walk away. He said he doesn’t remember getting hit. “I remember waking up bleeding,” he said. “My hand was all messed up. My head was messed up.” Lewis added: “He could’ve helped me out some way. He didn’t have to leave.” The footage was captured around 5 a.m. Saturday, thanks to security cameras set up outside Dale Lynn’s pawn shop. “I came in and I saw this horrific video,” Lynn said. “I thought, ‘This guy can’t be alive.’”
