Raleigh, N.C. — Four months after a driver hit Brian Moore from behind, the Raleigh man and his mother turned to the media for help in finding the person responsible.
Moore was headed to a friend's house, riding his mo-ped on Western Boulevard at about 10:30 p.m. March 29.
"I briefly remember going onto the hood of a car," he said.
Moore was thrown from his bike and landed on his head. His mother, Alcinda Moore, said she almost passed out when she saw how badly her son was injured.
"His bike went up in flames and was found approximately 125 feet away," she said. She's grateful that her son doesn't remember more about the crash and the immediate aftermath.
No one has ever been charged in the crash.
Alcinda Moore said. "I don't understand how anybody can do that," she said.
"Somebody was just drunk or did not care what they had done," he said. Man seeks answers in mo-ped crash
Brian Moore is trapped. His injuries and complications from surgery have kept him from walking or standing. While his medical bills mount, the mystery persists.
"I am kind of upset that I am in and out of the hospital, taking time off work, and whoever did this is living their day-to-day life like nothing ever happened," he said.
The Moores know Brian is lucky to be alive. The driver of a scooter died Wednesday in Durham when a car turned into his path. There have been similar deadly collisions this year in Raleigh and in Fayetteville.
Brian Moore hopes someone will come forward to help authorities find the car that hit him. Witnesses described a light-colored, newer-model sedan.
Police said the vehicle involved likely had front-end damage.
