Waiter still hospitalized after hit and run

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police are still searching for a driver who took off from the scene of a motorcycle crash over the weekend.

21-year-old Christian Jofre is still in the hospital. Police say Jofre was heading south on North Westover when the driver of a Ford F-150 was pulling out of the Homerun Foods.

Jofre laid down the bike to avoid getting hit, but the bike slid underneath the truck and Jofre was run over.

Jofre is a waiter at Austin's Firegrill. Owner Austin Newman says he suffered some bad bruising and broken bones. Police are looking for a gold F-150 with four doors.

They're collecting donations for Jofre to help with medical expenses.

"Very good guy," said Newman. "Unfortunate that this happened to him and this is his only source of income. He has a family. We are going to take up a collection, if anyone would like to donate they can come in and make a contribution."
