ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A woman pinned between a car and a wall at a Leesburg store Thursday night remains hospitalized in fair condition.

Julie Wood was walking out of the Dollar General on Robert B. Lee Drive when a Lexus driven by Victoria Carwile jumped the curb and trapped Wood against the wall. Wood is an investigator at the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office. Sheriff Kevin Sproul says she's an amazing employee who told him today she holds no anger against the woman who hit her.

"Julie said to tell everybody she's got her faith in the Lord,” said Kevin Sproul, Dougherty County Sheriff. “She's trusting God and she's got her focus on that. She's very strong, like I said earlier, strong mind and strong willed.”

Carwile told a state trooper her brakes failed. The Georgia State Patrol checked her brakes and say they appear to be working fine, but they don't plan to file charges.

Sheriff Sproul says he would like to thank the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia State Patrol for their quick response in helping Julie Wood. Sproul and Wood would also like to thank the lady who came to Wood’s aid at the Dollar General.
