Information Sought In Pedicab Hit-And-Run
Sep 21, 2007 02:40 PM
A pedicab worker injured in a hit-and-run is asking the public to help find the driver who hit him.
Investigators said a dark sports car rear-ended his cart on the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge on Aug. 24. One of his passengers was unconscious for several minutes before emergency workers could arrive.
“Even after he was taken out of ICU, he was still in the hospital for another week or two and was just recently released,” said pedicabber Russell Stinnett. “But he doesn’t remember anything, and I don’t mean he doesn’t remember anything about the wreck. He doesn’t remember anything. He doesn’t recognize people. He doesn’t recognize his family.”
The driver suffered two fractured vertebrae and bruising on his back that kept him from working for at least two weeks.
Investigators said they’ve solved hit-and-run cases with information as simple as a bumper sticker, so they’re asking witnesses to call Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-8477 with any details, no matter how small.
