Dirtbikindad,

Have you or anyone else thought about placing a reward for information? I hate to say it, but money seems to be the only thing people will open their mouths for. I'm sure the investigating agency is still working the case and eventually this scumbag will see his day.. My prayers are with your family..

Tonight all the big news channels 2, 4, 5, 7 9 and 11 will cover this story.

The Critical Mass Ride Salutes injured Cyclist Damian Kevitt.

The organizers of the Critical Mass Family Ride (lacriticalmass.org) will have up to 4000 bicyclists routed by USA Medical Center in honor of injured hit & run victim Damian Kevitt still in the hospital from injuries suffered in a hit & run.

Set your DVR or tune in to your favorite station tonight Friday 03/29/13 for coverage of this momentous event.

Background:

Damian Kevitt was riding his bicycle with his wife on a Sunday morning in February, heading from the LA River bike path to the LA Zoo, when he was hit by a light-colored mini-van and dragged under the car for nearly a 1/4-mile and left for dead on the 5 Freeway. Witnesses said the van had a For Sale sign in the rear window with Spanish writing and a telephone prefix of 213. Damian was wearing a helmet and bike gloves which saved his life, though he suffered over 20 broken bones, several deep gashes in his legs (to the bone), severe road rash all over his body with particular damage to his backside and his right leg had to be amputated below the knee. Doctors are still working to save his left foot. He has had 9 surgeries in a period of 6 weeks and more to come. He is undergoing surgery #9 today.

Tonight!
LA Critical Mass is the largest community bicycle ride in America (lacriticalmass.org). Approximately 4,000 cyclists will ride past the hospital in salute to fallen cyclist, Damian Kevitt. The mass of cyclists, including families, seniors and other bicycle enthusiasts, will ride along Mission Blvd and the corner of Marengo on the west border of the hospital where Damian is. They will arrive at the corner of Marengo and Mission at approximately 8:20pm. There will be a banner posted on that corner dedicating the ride to Damian. Damian's mother, Michele Kevitt Kirkland, will be there to wave to the cyclists as they ride by.

$25,000 Reward
The Altadena CHP are seeking the public's help to find the driver of the van who hit Damian and sped away, dragging him under his car. Councilman Tom La Bonge issued a $25,000 reward for information leading to the capture, arrest and conviction of the driver. It is important to broadcast the message that anyone can come forward without fear of consequences regardless of their immigration status, outstanding tickets, etc. The CHP will ask no questions and are not interested in their immigration status--they only want information that could lead them to the driver. As well, anyone with information can call WE TIP hotline and give information anonymously and still receive the reward money, if their information results in conviction of the driver who hit Damian.

How to Report Information

1) WE TIP has bilingual operators 24/7. The website is wetip.com. The phone number is: 1-800-782-7463 or 1-800-78 CRIME (not for texting)

2) Altadena CHP: 626-296-8100

Additional Note
Damian is very determined to have a good recovery and ride his bike again. He is alert, intelligent and has a positive attitude. Damian has said, "I will be able to recover and walk away from this horrific accident. Unless the driver of the van who hit me, comes forward and proper justice is done, he will never be able to recover--he will never be able to walk away from this--he will live a miserable life of lies, hiding and knowing exactly what he did to his fellow human being."
