RICHMOND, Va. -- A mother of three was listed in critical, but stable, condition Friday, days after a driver hit her outside Image Restaurant and Lounge in Richmond's Shockoe Bottom neighborhood, according to CBS 6.

Brittany Summers was hurt and 22-year-old Shanice Woodberry was killed when the driver plowed into a crowd on East Main Street after a fight spilled out into the sidewalk early Wednesday morning. Video of the incident spread quickly on social media.

"I personally woke up to the video, I was tagged on the video as my sister laid in the street," Summers' sister Chelsea Prince said. "One of my first thoughts was 'where is security', because they have security to break up fights."

Summers and Woodberry did not know each other.

Neither woman was involved in the fight, according to witnesses.

"We had to watch people standing over her and even another man in the street and asking for help. Nobody was helping-they were just filming, it's disgusting," Prince added.

"And for the guy videotaping her, you could've helped. You could've stopped recording and started CPR," sister Jazzmin Eppes said.

Summers' sisters are planning to alternate between who will take care of their Summers' three children while she is hospitalized.

"It was the night after her son's first birthday party and I awoke to her ex-boyfriend calling me saying I needed to get to MCV because he saw her get hit by a car and it was bad," sister Kala Davis said.

Summers' family set-up a GoFundMe page to help cover medical costs.

Richmond Police said the woman wanted in connection to the hit-and-run has been arrested. Shiauna M. Harris, 21, was taken into custody Friday evening.

Richmond Police pulled Harris over during a traffic stop almost simultaneously when the department sent a release out offering a reward for her capture, according to WTVR.
