WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — KSN News continues to follow a hit-and-run that sent a cyclist to the hospital. It happened Thursday night near Macarther and Hydraulic. Police are still searching for the driver of a silver Dodge Journey.

It has been two days since Brad Myer was hit by a vehicle while riding his bicycle. His family wants help finding out who hit Myer as he is fighting for his life in the hospital.

“He is easy to get along with. He is very active. Had he been able to keep up the bike riding, he would. But as far as a son, he was a great son,” said D’Lynna Richter, the victim’s mother.

A mother’s worst nightmare. Richter said at 9:30 Friday morning, she got a call from the Wichita Police Department that her son was in the hospital after being struck by a vehicle while riding his bike.

“Broken neck, his foot is broken, broken arm in several places. I think his left leg from his knee down to his foot was just all busted up, and I am sure there are other injured beside those,” said Pat Richter, the victim’s stepfather.
