Quivers explained what happened on Stern’s satellite radio show earlier this week.  

“This guy came out of a parking lot or some kind of side street like a maniac and he lost control of his car and he hit me,” she says, adding, “He spun around in a 360 and hit me” The other driver smashed into into the driver’s side of her SUV and driver quickly sped away, she says, except there was only one crucial error.

“He ran away … the wrong way down a dead end street. That’s how they [witnesses] got his license plate. Because he had to come back again,” she says.

Police in Barneget Township, N.J., were able to track down the owner of the car, 50-year-old Robert Crockett. Crockett was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, reckless driving and operating an unregistered vehicle.

Quivers said on the show that, while she’s OK, “I jammed my thumb. My thumb is killing me.”
