An owner of a Lexington food truck is getting help from some fellow vendors to help pay her medical expenses from a hit-and-run accident.

Police said Barbara Screeney had just gotten off the bus to walk to her home on Frankfort Pike late last year, when a driver passed the bus and hit her from behind without stopping.

Medical reports revealed Barbara received a broken collarbone and fractured skull, resulting in brain surgery to save her life.

Barbara put all of her money into her food truck, "That's How We Roll," leaving nothing for medical costs.

Barbara's truck, along with seven others, are taking part in a fundraiser for her on Friday at 400 East Main Street. It lasts until 7pm.

Ten percent of the proceeds will go towards Barbara's medical bills, but donations are also being accepted online.
