HOUSTON — Surgeons were forced to amputate the leg of a young pregnant woman who was hit by a car and pinned against a house Thursday.

Doctors say Alise Kelly’s unborn baby is expected to be OK.

Kelly’s sister said the ordeal has been very traumatic for the 21-year-old.

"She's upset, but she's not saying too much," said Monique Walker.

Police are still searching for another pregnant woman who was allegedly behind the wheel of the car that hit Kelly.

The incident happened in the 9600 block of Ravensworth Drive, where Kelly, 21, lives with her boyfriend, Christopher Chaney.

Chaney said his ex-girlfriend, 26-year-old Shareyll Hunter, showed up at the house Thursday morning and started arguing with Kelly.

"I was in my house asleep, and then one of my kids’ mothers came," Chaney said. "I mean, they been texting and talking over the phone saying they want to fight each other and meet up right here and do it."

All of the commotion outside roused Chaney from bed.

"When I came outside, I seen my kids’ mother punching on the window and she wanted to fight the other one," Chaney said.

He said Hunter jumped into his car and gunned it, pinning her 21-year-old rival between the car and the house, police said.

Witnesses heard Kelly screaming in pain.

"[She was screaming] ‘It hurts, it’s burning and her baby,’" a neighbor said. "And I was like, ‘She’s pregnant,’ and that’s when I seen her leg twisted."

Kelly was rushed to the hospital with two broken legs. Doctors had to amputate one leg. The baby is expected to be OK.

Hunter drove off in her ex-boyfriend’s four-door Lincoln LS. She remained on the loose at last check.

Hunter is five months pregnant and the victim is four months pregnant. Chaney, 26, says he is the father in both cases.

Reporter: "You think it [the hit-and-run] is because of you getting them pregnant?"

Christopher Chaney: "I mean, I’m handsome."

Chaney has two other children with Hunter. He bragged he’s also fathered children with two other women, bringing the total to four, with two more on the way.
