Family and police asking for help finding suspect in suspected hit and run crash
The crash happened Friday morning
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -
Police are still looking for the driver of a hit and run crash that left one man hospitalized.
Friday morning, Kris Green was struck by an SUV while riding his bicycle and was severely injured.
According to Kris’s brother Ken, Kris was riding his bike in the cross walk between Rite Aid and the Marathon service station on Abbot Road and Saginaw when he was hit.
The driver who hit Kris left the scene.
Ken is now urging the public for answers and information, “Please, if you were in the intersection around the intersection, if you saw anything, no detail is too small,” said Ken, “Please contact the East Lansing Police and you know, help my family, help my brother, we do appreciate it.”
Ken said there were two women who stopped when they saw Kris laying in the street to render aid, but he doesn’t know who they are.
“Thank you, angels, we would like to know who they are and hopefully those people will come forward as well. I would like if they can contact the East Lansing Police and leave their names and numbers, pass that on to me because I would like to thank them personally,” said Ken.
Ken says his brother is a frontline worker at Walmart and doesn’t have health insurance, so they are worried about the hospital bills.
The family has set up a GoFundMe to help with medical bills as Ken says Kris has: a broken right ankle, broken left femur, broken right hip socket and pelvic bone, three broken ribs, and a collapsed lung.
“The unfortunate thing is my brother doesn’t have medical insurance,” said Ken, “He had recently signed up for medical insurance, but we have learned his insurance doesn’t kick in until May 1, so we’re kind of at a loss with this.”
Lieutenant Chad Pride with The East Lansing Police Department says if anyone was in the area that morning or has any information that might lead them to the driver to call 517-319-6897 or 517-351-4220 ext 2. Refence traffic crash case #2136400886.
