Family holds prayer vigil for hit-and-run victim; suspect still at-large

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Asia Hoskins, 19, is still in a coma following last week's head on collision, and family and friends are remaining in prayer that the young woman will wake up soon. The college sophomore's dream is to become a fitness instructor.

Supporters of Asia gathered together on Sunday afternoon for a prayer vigil in her honor.

"Gathered as a group and as a community to celebrate your love and your grace, but to also come together for justice for Asia," a person leading the group in prayer said.

Those who love and cherish CSU student Asia Hoskins came together Sunday afternoon praying for a miracle.

Hoskin's mother, Valerie Ghant says they're also asking for answers to another prayer.

"We are having this prayer walk to show praise to solidify praise to God for the miraculous things he's about to do," Ghant said. "Also, we're having it that hopefully someone will see it and have some integrity or conviction about what's going on and do the right thing turn this guy in."

Columbus Police say they're looking for William Tarver. He is believed to been the driver of the now-mangled dark blue 1982 Chevy Malibu that crashed into Asia.

Witnesses say the Malibu and another vehicle were racing down Lawyers Lane in a 30 mile per hour zone. The Malibu crashed head-on with Asia's white BMW on July 3.

Tarver reportedly left the scene with the person he was racing against.
