MIAMI (CBS 4)- A South Florida family is asking for the public’s help in finding the person responsible for a hit and run crash that left their 67-year-old father injured and bleeding on the side of the road.

According to police, the incident happened on Wednesday night at 152nd Street and 93rd Avenue across the street from Jackson Memorial Hospital South.

Police said that Mario Blanca was riding his motorcycle east bound on 152nd Street when a car trying to make a left on 93rd Ave made a turn on a red light straight into Blanca’s path.

Blanca’s son, who spoke to CBS 4’s Silva Harapetian, was in tears devastated at how anyone could do that to his 67-year-old father.

Blanca’s daughter, Minsu Blanca, said she is angry.

“How could someone hit someone and leave them like a dog in the middle of the street without stopping to see if he is alive or dead,” Minsu Blanca said.

Blanca has a number of serious injuries and is currently at Jackson Memorial Hospital,Harapetian reported.

Florida Highway Patrol said they have no witnesses and no description of a vehicle. They’re hoping that anyone with information will come forward and call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    Some 67 year olds on a motorcycle are safer drivers than the younger ones on crotch rockets that speed and weave in and out of traffic. The motorcyclist had the right of way.

    1. Jose Rivera says:

      @County…Just like you said “some 67 yr olds are safer, but not this one….You mean to tell me, that a 67 yr old with delayed reactions and slow motor skills are safer drivers?

      1. County says:

        His reactions are not that delayed at 67 if he were 76 then that would be a different story. Don’t foregt older people drive cars.

  2. Vern says:

    Do not blame the victim, you dunce. He was legally riding his motorcycle and was killed, left to die on the side of the road. Simple as that. Do not blame the victim.

  3. Vanessa says:

    That I see in the article nowhere does it say that Blanco was killed. It also doesn’t say he has delayed reactions or mental impairments, he was 67- not disabled for God’s sake. Yuni my prayers are with you and your family and especially your father at this time.

  4. Carol says:

    AGAIN SPEED KILLS FOR BIKES AS WELL AS CARS. When people drive fast bikes or rocketbikes they do not have any “RULES”…They think God made the roads just for them and can break the laws 24/7…Sorry to say this but when bikes fly people can’t see you and PEOPLE pull-out and go on with there life when out of the blue there hit at a high rate of speed. When you fly and hit and car or truck it seems like most die.. There is a yellow bike and a blue bike everyday on US1 they fly ride between cars stopped at red lights and they always flicking others off and drive at a high rate of speed. To get ahead of everyone. Out on most of the highways bikes have no rules and never see any pulled over by the police. Its like they don’t care…AGIAN SPEED KILLS WHEN YOU SLIP-UP..The way I think if you keep playing thats riding between cars thats driving with you.. THIS TYPE OF DRIVING WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU AND IT ALWAYS ENDS IN DEATH. People that drive the fast bikes they do not care who’s on the road.. ‘WHAT COMES AROUND GOES AROUND..WHEN YOU DO HARM TO OTHER DRIVERS IT WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU. YOU DON’T CARE WHAT HARM YOUR DOING JUST AS LONG AS YOUR IN FRONT AND YOU DON’T CARE WHO YOU CUT OFF OR RAN OFF THE ROAD TO GET THERE. AGAIN FAST BIKES OR ROCKETBIKES HAVE NO RULES….THEY CAN SPEED FLY BREAK THE LAW ON ANY STREET AND WHO CARES…THESE TYPES OF BIKES SHOULD BE MADE JUST FOR RACING AND OUTLAWED ON ANY STREET…THERE WOULD BE LESS KILLED ! ! ! LESS KILLED IF ITS ON A RACE TRACK …NO MORE FAMILIES KILLED PULLING OUT OF A PARKING LOTS AND LOOKING BOTH WAYS AND NOT BEING HIT BY A ROCKET BIKE OR A FAST BIKE…ITS TIME TO PUT THESE BIKES WERE THEY BELONG.(not on the street) I have family thats been killed by this type of TRASH. It hurts,it hurts you never forget what it was that killed your family member.
