East Texas Family Asking For Help

An East Texas family is turning to the internet to track down a hit and run driver. 

Ben Wood celebrated his 19th birthday in the hospital because he was hit while riding his motorcycle on New Years Eve in Smith County. The driver of the vehicle that hit him left the scene. Ben is still in the hospital, and his family has set up a blog to update his condition and ask for any help to find whoever it hit him.

"I don't see how anybody could have left somebody lying in that condition. His bike was completely trashed and he was lying on the road completely helpless," said Katie Wood, Ben's sister.

An account has also been set up at Austin State Bank to help with Ben Wood's medical bills. The account name is Jeff and Sandy Wood for the benefit of Ben Wood.
