JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 32 year-old construction worker was seriously injured following a hit-and-run on Wednesday afternoon. His friends and family are now looking for the driver of the truck that hit him.
Bryan Hahn is recovering from a broken tail bone and a fractured hip. He is still hospitalized at UF Health Jacksonville where he is expected spend the next few days before being allowed to go home. Then months of rehabilitation begin.
"I was learning down, the truck came by I remember screaming call 911," said Hahn from his hospital bed.
The accident happened on New Kings Road just west of Interstate 295 where Hahn was inspecting a trailer that broke down. Hahn's boss, Nick Manos, says the trailer was pulled off the road with safety cones in place to warn motorists who were heading into Jacksonville on New Kings Road.
"I mean come on, he (the driver) knew what happened. He blasted our cones all down the road," said Manos who along with friends is searching for the driver of a white truck pulling a landscape trailer that kept on going. They believe the truck minutes later pulled into a convenience store just down the road.
Manos joined by other employees of his swimming pool company have returned to the scene of the accident this week to help find witnesses and get clues on who the driver of the truck might be. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is also investigating.
Hahn said from his hospital bed that he hopes someone knows something.
"I was trying to fix a trailer and some truck driver came by and popped me," said Hahn.
