LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Family members want answers days after their loved one is killed in a hit and run accident.
Family members are hoping the person responsible will turn themselves in.
But if they do not--there is evidence left behind that may break the case.
"They left him there alone, in a ditch, in a cold ditch like an animal," said Melissa Shaffner, sister of victim.
Early Monday Morning, 38 year old Travis Christy was killed when biking to his early shift at Waste Management. Police say the driver who hit him--didn't stop to help. "Kind of like you just hit him and left him on the side of the road like a dog, and there's someone out there that knows something," said Angela Henson, friend.
Family and friends of Christy have plenty of questions, but no closure. "Does this person have remorse for what they have done?" asked Shaffner.
"We want to know that they're sorry, for what they did," said Henson.
They describe him as a hard working father of two teen sons, who loved his family. "The last 2 things that he did before he died was to bring me groceries and to pay my mom's light bill," said Shaffner.
Police say a passing driver discovered Christy in the ditch on Grade Lane around 6 that morning. They believe the vehicle is possibly a silver Ford F-150 with damage to the right side, missing a side mirror. "The impact caused Travis and the bike to fly into a ditch. They sustained a lot of damage on the passenger side," said Shaffner.
If the driver will not come forward, Shaffner hopes someone who knows even the smallest detail, might call. "They have to understand that he is a human being that is going to be missed and loved by so many people," said Shaffner.
Travis Christy's funeral is Thursday. If you have any information about this accident, call 574-LMPD.
