CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (June 11, 2015) — Four teens are credited with saving a woman’s life after she was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Crawfordsville early Sunday morning.

“I just felt this weird warm sensation like go back I feel like she’s hurt I’m just like worried about her,” said 16-year-old Miranda Wooford.

Miranda is thankful she went with her gut instinct. She and her friends were driving down State Road 32 in Crawfordsville early Sunday morning when they passed a woman walking along the road. Miranda told her friends to turn around a short time later. That’s when they discovered someone hit 28-year-old Naomi Wolf and left her to die.

“We thought she was just trying to lay there to see if someone would pick her up but when we got back to her i seen all the blood I was like, ‘Oh God,'” said 17-year-old Dylan Cummins.

The teens took off to get a phone and call 911–a move Naomi’s husband says saved his wife’s life.

“I’m truly blessed and unbelievably thankful that they were able to save the life of their mother, my best friend. The woman I love with all my heart,” said Barrett Wolf.

The mother of two underwent surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. Crawfordsville police tracked down  37-year-old Jason Baldridge who’s charged with hitting Naomi and leaving the scene.

The teens have been in touch with the Wolf family and plan to meet Naomi face to face after she recovers.
