They said EMS arrived quickly but she died.

Those women declined to do an interview, too distraught by what they witnessed.

Investigators called the incident domestic, explaining the victim knew the driver. They’re still looking for that white SUV and the driver. They haven’t been identified.

“It was scary, it’s sad, my daughter was coming home, they come home on that street,” Debra Morrison, a neighbor said.

After hearing a helicopter circling and sirens, Morrison who lives nearby called her daughter. She learned about what took place on our website.

“You meant to harm and you caused harm, and you didn’t even stop to see if you could have helped her, or if she was still alive, or even explaining yourself like maybe you didn’t mean to do it,” she explained.

Authorities couldn’t say how Frazier ended up on the hood, how long she was on it for or why that driver kept going.

“That’s saying a lot of behalf of the person who’s even driving it, like stop your car, if it gets that serious call the police,” Xaverian Evans, a neighbor said.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information on the case to give them a call.
