A Vermilion Parish family is asking for anyone with information on a hit and run incident to come forward. They are hoping someone will come forward with information that may help the police. According to KATC, the crash involving a pedestrian was on July 10 at 4:30 am. The pedestrian was standing in the center of LA 82, just north of the Perry Bridge, when he was struck by a vehicle. After the driver of the vehicle hit the pedestrian, the vehicle fled the scene.

The pedestrian is a 34-year-old father of three and he is in ICU at a local hospital on a ventilator. Susan Mire, the victim’s mother, told KATC that he has broken bones in his neck and needs back surgery, but the doctors say they can’t perform the surgery right now as it could leave him paralyzed.

Mire’s family has shared the information on social media and are pleading for anyone with any information, no matter how small, to please inform the Louisiana State Police Troop I at 337-262-5880.
