Reward Up in Hit and Run

Friends and family have now doubled the reward for information about a hit and run that left a cyclist seriously hurt.

Twenty-year-old Logan Ashmore was riding his bike along Velda Dairy Road on Memorial Day when he was struck by a car. The car kept going.

He's been through four surgeries since then and still uses a walker to get around.

Wednesday he was shopping for a new bike and hoping the now $2,200 reward would prompt someone to step forward.

Logan said, "I'm hoping the reward will entice people because it's sad to say friends do have a price. If someone knows the information, they might not say, but if you tell them there's $2,200 in it for them, they might come forward."

Homemade signs are up along Velda Dairy Road advertising the reward. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 891-HELP.

Ashmore says he knows the odds of finding the hit and run driver are slim, but he's hoping someone will do the right thing.
