He was just out for a Sunday ride when a car crashed into him. The driver took off, leaving him down in the middle of a busy intersection.
"There's nothing I could do," said Matt Blair.
Matt won't be leaving the hospital anytime soon. However, he feels lucky to be alive.
He was on his motorcycle at 180th & Harrison Sunday around 5:00 p.m. A driver started inching out into the intersection at the green light, and turned right into Matt's motorcycle.
"I tried laying it down on my left side, but left leg got caught in between the car and my bike. I just flipped over the car onto my back." said Blair.
The impact from the crash sent him flying into the middle of the intersection.
Matt says the driver got out of the car. "He said I'm sorry I didn't see you and just drove off. He had to back up and go around me to actually leave the scene."
Matt was in extreme pain. His leg was nearly shattered.
"I lifted my leg off the ground and I just felt it fall like there was no support. No bone left inside of it whatsoever." said Blair.
Other drivers did stop to help. One even tried chasing down the driver who fled.
"I'd like to see him turn himself in, the guilt get to him. I think he should serve some jail time and lose his license." said Blair.
Doctors say Matt should get between 95 and 97% of his leg movement back, but for now, he has a long road ahead.
"I'm going to be in the hospital for two to three weeks. In another three months, I have to have another surgery." said Matt.
Matt describes the driver as between 55 and 60-years-old. He has gray hair and glasses.
Matt believes he was driving a white, four door Buick LaCrosse or similar white sedan. He thinks it was between model years 1998 and 2005.
