"I haven't closed my eyes, since I went to bed Sunday night because whenever I close my eyes I see my wife laying on a road, bleeding and dying in front of our home," said James Hughes.

Charlene was flown to OU Med Monday afternoon, with injuries all over her body. According to police, Miller left the scene only to turn herself over to police the following day.

Miller's car was caught on the dash camera of a young male driver traveling down 180th Street shortly after wreck. Charlene's husband hopes Miller will have no leniency when she answers in court. Charlene can barely move her arms, and cannot move her legs.

Charges have not been filed yet against Miller, and family said that's because it is not clear if Charlene will be able to recover.
