DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - DeKalb County Police want to find the drivers who hit a man and kept going. It happened Sunday night on River Road.
Family members say 21-year-old Devin Eason left home around 10 p.m. Minutes later, he lost control of his motorcycle. Investigators say multiple vehicles hit him and kept going.
“That last time I seen him walk out the house, I didn't think that would be the last time I would see him,” says DeAundrea Hackett.
Someone eventually stopped and called for help. Emergency crews found Eason in critical condition. He died that night.
Eason and Hackett have a four-month-old son together. She says the two planned to marry.
“My worst fear was to raise a child on my own without his father,” says Hackett. “They could've stopped, they could've stopped traffic, they could've rendered aid to him, but the way society is, people don't care, people don't care at all and it's sad.”
FOX 5 News confirmed Eason's father is a DeKalb County police officer.
“My son died out there on that street alone, by himself,” says Lauri Eason. “The people who hit him didn't stop. He deserved so much more than that.”
Meantime, family members say they don't hate the drivers responsible, they just wish they showed compassion.
A neighbor tells FOX 5's Kerry Charles, his security camera captured the entire incident. He says it also shows another driver go around Eason and keep going. That neighbor turned that video over to investigators.
Meantime, anyone with information about the vehicles involved in the hit and run is asked to call DeKalb County Police.
