KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A grandmother is in the hospital with five broken ribs after police said she was run over by a car outside her south Kansas City home. Police said they are searching for a man and a woman who were involved in the incident.

"She was speeding so fast up the street but she sped right to me and hit me," said Victoria Potts, the victim. "The next thing I knew I was on the ground and I could feel her wheel rolling in top of me on my chest."

Potts said her nine grandchildren witnessed the horrible incident.

"I was just so scared for my life, I thought I was dying right there in front of the kids I literally thought I was dead," she told FOX 4.

Potts said four people showed up to her home and tried mess with her daughter's car. When things got tense between her daughter and the group, Potts said she told everybody to go home. That's when she said one of the women, who she said she doesn't know, plowed into her.

Potts, who is a big Mary J. Blige fan, said she and her husband had front row tickets to Monday's concert but they had to miss it because she was in the hospital recovering.

"We planned this, we waited for this night," she said. "I love you Mary, I miss you and I hope I see you again."

Potts said even though she is missing out on seeing her favorite artist she can still forgive.

"I forgive anybody, I forgive anybody," she said.
