The surviving family of a recent hit-and-run are making a plea to the person responsible. “Whoever done it, I wish they’d turn themselves in, for us, and for our family, and make the pain go away a little bit. But the pain in my heart will never leave.”
The family has suffered an unimaginable loss. The last weekend of August, their son was driving his motorcycle through Shelbyville when he stopped at the intersection of Lane Parkway and Colloredo Boulevard. He patiently waited for the light to turn green, and when it did, he took off. An approaching motorist in a SUV wasn’t paying attention to the traffic signal, however, and they smashed into the rider.
The man lost his life in the accident, but the driver of the SUV kept driving. Later a resident reported an abandoned SUV in a cul-de-sac off Southridge Boulevard. Evidence collected from the SUV has led investigators to tie the vehicle to the fatal accident.
Authorities have been trying to contact the SUV’s owner, but haven’t been able to yet. Now, the Shelbyville Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward from the CrimeStoppers program.
The family knows that whoever took their son’s life is aware of what they’ve done. They simply want closure after this horrible incident.
