On Oct. 20, 2009, 911 operators received a report of a hit and run at the Department of Economic Services building in Peoria, Ariz. Witnesses said an SUV struck two women in the parking lot. The victims were identified as 20-year-old Noor Almaleki, seen here, and 43-year-old Amal Khalaf.
When paramedics arrived, Noor was unconscious and lying face down in the gravel. She had been dragged several feet under the vehicle before it fled the scene. Noor was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, fighting for her life.
Although severely injured, Amal was able to identify the driver of the vehicle. She told police it was Faleh Almaleki, Noor's father.
The horrifying news that Noor Almaleki had been run over by her own father spread quickly among her friends.
"When I found out Noor was in an accident-- I was so shocked. I didn't wanna believe it," said Nuha.
"Is this true? Is my friend really-- hurt?" Sana said. "Why would something like this happen to Noor?"
"I didn't believe it at first...and when I found out exactly what had happened, and it was just...you know, really heartbreaking," said Adhi.
The 20-year-old college student was in a coma... fighting for her life.
"Noor's condition was -- was very critical," Peoria, Ariz. police detective Chris Boughey told "48 Hours Mystery" correspondent Troy Roberts. "She...suffered multiple vertebrae fractures, an ankle fracture, a severe closed head injury and multiple soft tissue injuries from head to toe, basically."
Noor's friend, Amal Khalaf, had been thrown 27 feet, fracturing her pelvis and femur. Miraculously, she survived.
"This is a serious crime," Det. Boughey said. "Two people were severely injured and it was an intentional act. That's a big deal."
But the man suspected of running them over -- Noor's father -- had vanished. So on Oct. 20, 2009, Det. Boughey launched a manhunt.
