Thirty-eight-year-old Travis Christy was riding his bike in the southbound lane of Grade Lane in Louisville early in the morning on Monday, October 29, 2012. He was reportedly on his way to work the early shift at Waste Management.  Around 6 a.m. that day, a passing motorist found Travis Christy’s body in a ditch on the side of the road. Mr. Christy was reported to have been killed in a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Mr. Christy’s sister and other relatives were reportedly looking for answers the day after this tragic hit-and-run crash. They specifically wanted to know who was responsible for their loved one’s death.

Police believed that they were looking for a silver truck that could be missing a driver’s side mirror and that could have significant damage from the impact of this fatal bicycle accident. On November 1, 2012 the Louisville Metro Police announced that he had located a 2009 silver Dodge truck in Bullitt County that they believe was involved in this alleged hit and run accident.

Friends and family members of Travis Christy describe him as a hardworking man who loved and cared for his two teenage sons. His sister has told the media that the last two things Mr. Christy did before he died were to bring her groceries and to pay his mother’s electric bill.
