Beloit woman victim of hit-and-run

Monica Carr said she received a text from her brother Warren Pilcher Monday morning saying “Diane is in heaven.”
“Diane,” was Diane Sibley, who according to Beloit police was found “unconscious and non-responsive in the alley of the 100 block of South Mill” in Beloit after she was run over between midnight and 2:11 a.m. Saturday. Sibley died Monday morning at St. Francis Via Christi in Wichita.
Carr referred to Sibley as her brother’s wife, although they were not married. They had been together for 16 years.
Carr, of Wichita, said Sibley had been at Beloit’s Eagle’s Club, where she had been a longtime a bartender. She was not working that night.
As she was leaving Saturday morning, she was believed to have been struck by a large vehicle, Carr said.
“(The car) completely ran over the top of her,” Carr said. “One side of her ribs were shattered, her other ribs were broken, she had a broken arm, broken collar bone, punctured lungs, internal bleeding, lacerations; she made it all the way through till about eight o’clock (Monday) morning.”
