“Dear PoPville,

Seeking help from community for ideas / resources. Friend was hit by a construction truck on the crosswalk crossing Eckington Pl NE next to Florida Ave around 1:30 / 2 am 11/21/15. Friend was dragged and had leg and pelvis crushed. They are fighting to recover at the hospital but the family is needing help to seek answers and find the person responsible. All we know it was a construction truck turning right onto Florida Ave NE headed westbound from Eckington Pl NE (truck didn’t look right as pedestrian light was on and friend started to cross). The truck had a part of the load hold area that’s red. MPD took a police report but how could someone have the lack of humanity to hit someone and run?!

Did look around and didn’t necessarily find traffic cameras pointed towards the intersection. Any ideas/help to give family answers appreciated. Thanks in advance.”
