A distraught family is pleading for the person who struck their loved one over the weekend and fled the scene to come forward.
63 year old Claude Pigeault was hit on his motorcycle on Saturday and was thrown from the bike at 68th St. and Memorial Drive N.E.
While police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash, his family believes it was a hit and run.
His wife Linda and daughter Yvette Carman spoke to Global News. They’re pleading with the person who hit him to come forward as Claude fights for his life.
“His heart stopped numerous times. They had to resuscitate him four times. You don’t want to see your dad go through that.”
Pigeault suffered broken ribs, a bruised lung, and a fractured skull.
The family says they have spoken to a witness who believes a silver SUV may be involved and his wife is appealing to the driver’s conscience.
“They’re going to live with that. That’s not a good feeling I’m sure to have that type of guilt. Just come and tell me, tell me you’re sorry.”
Carman says its hard to see her dad laying there, going in and out of consciousness.
“I need to have someone held accountable for what they did. My dad is fighting for his life right now and that’s not pretty to see. That’s my dad.”
Investigators say they don’t yet have a definite vehicle description and are still looking for more witnesses to come forward.
