Bicyclist critically killed in hit-and-run crash

Police are looking for a green SUV

INDIANAPOLIS -  

The family of an Indianapolis bicyclist who was killed when he was struck by an SUV  in a hit-and-run crash is asking the person who drove away to step forward.

The incident happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday in the 2600 block of North Emerson Avenue.

The bicyclist, Earmon "Bud" Hubbard III, 52, was rushed to Wishard Memorial Hospital in critical condition, where he later died.

Hubbard was riding his bicycle southbound on North Emerson Avenue when he was struck from behind by the SUV, police said. 

The vehicle was described as an older-model green SUV with front-end damage.

Hubbard's brother, Byron Hubbard, said that his family is leaning on faith in hopes that the driver of the SUV will come forward.

"We hope that God has mercy on him. We have forgiven (the driver).  We have chosen not to speculate what was going through that person's mind," Byron Hubbard said. "I have faith in our police force and this process. I hope this person turns himself in."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS or 911.
