A Stamford woman who says she was hit by a stolen taxi in December and left for dead spoke exclusively to News 12 Connecticut today

STAMFORD - A Stamford woman who says she was hit by a stolen taxi in December and left for dead spoke exclusively to News 12 Connecticut today about her traumatic ordeal.

Brenda Snell, 49, says she is continuing her recovery in Paradigm Healthcare Center after being in a coma for two months and then learning to walk again.

Last December, Snell was walking on a sidewalk along Stillwater Avenue when she was hit by a stolen taxi that was driven by 18-year-old Deondre Bowden.

Snell says she was in court this week when Bowden pleaded guilty in the case.

Bowden is expected to begin serving seven to 10 years behind bars for the accident when he's sentenced in January.
