$25,000 reward for hit & run driver who hit cyclist Damien Kevitt

Damien Kevitt lost his leg after after a selfish dirtbag in a minivan made an illegal turn, striking Kevitt and dragging him 600 feet onto the I-5 freeway in Los Angeles last month. The city of Los Angeles are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the dirt bag who did this. They believe he probably plays soccer at the Ferraro Soccer Complex and Dog Park and invite community members to hand out flyers and maybe look for a damaged minivan tomorrow.

Damian Kevitt was struck on on Feb. 17 around 11:35 a.m. when a minivan made a hard left, that struck and dragged him 600 feet down the Interstate 5 on-ramp until he fell from the vehicle. The violent collision broke 20 bones and crushed his right leg. Doctors had to amputate his right leg below the knee. His left foot is missing tissue and skin and may also need to be amputated the road rash was so severe, it was down to the bone on Kevitt’s left elbow, and his buttocks will need skin grafts.
