The mother of an 18-year-old injured said that her daughter broke her hips, pelvis and lower back. 

The girl's mother says the situation all started with a fight between her daughter and 31-year-old Shameka Sharell Peoples' daughter. She gave 11Alive's Chris Hopper a second video of a group of girls fighting, saying that it is what led up to the shocking incident.

Troopers are still searching for the SUV and the driver, who they believe to be 31-year-old Peoples, of Griffin. 

Anyone with information on Peoples' whereabouts is asked to call 770-254-7201.
