(Justin Guy) Driver sought i wrong-way accident

HOUSTON -- Police are searching for the driver of a vehicle who was involved in an accident with a motorcycle while traveling the wrong way on a northwest Houston freeway, KPRC Local 2 reported.

Justin Guy, 24, was riding his motorcycle on the Lake Woodlands overpass loop at Interstate 45 Thursday at 8:30 a.m. when a dark-colored Suburban entered the one-way ramp traveling the wrong direction.

Guy swerved to miss the driver, but hit the retaining wall and skidded at least 58 feet before hitting a tree, according to investigators.

He was hospitalized in critical condition and has been unconscious since the accident.

"He's been unresponsive and the only response he's had is to pain," said Chris Guy, the victim's mother.

"They had to have known they hit something and they kept going like it was no big deal," said Julissa Segovia, the victim's fiancee.

"We believe somebody has seen something," said Sgt. Tom Libby with the Oak Ridge Police Department.

Police said Guy was wearing protecting gear, including a helmet. His mother said he saved for years to buy his black 2001 Suzuki GSXR 1000.

Chris Guy said she would not feel peace until the driver who hurt her son is found.

"That would help my son when he recovers to forgive, to focus on a speedy recovery," she said.

Doctors said it could take weeks for Justin Guy to fully recover.

A fund has been established to help with Justin Guy's mounting medical bills. Donations can be made at Woodforest National Bank in The Woodlands.

Wish a well recovery for him... And pray the family finds peace.

I hope the driver comes forth or if not, gets what they deserve for putting someone through something like that. Its one thing to have an 'accident' and another to have a wreck.

Nah there are witnesses. Just unable to positively identify the car, or not coming forward. Justin is a riding buddy of mine, and he is in bad shape. From what I understand the vehicle just kept going after he hit, so everything happened behind the witnesses.

I don't believe everything the media says, so I'd like to ask if there's anything confirming this:

"Guy swerved to miss the driver, but hit the retaining wall and skidded at least 58 feet before hitting a tree, according to investigators. "

Were the investigators wrong, and the bike and Suburban made contact, or did he swerve to miss and hit the retaining wall as stated in the article? The driver is wrong either way, but I hear everyone saying "how do you hit someone and not stop" but there may not have actually been contact. If the driver didn't hear the tires screech (if they did) or look in their rearview, they might not have actually known what happened.

Again, the driver was still at fault for what happened and it sounds like Justin did his best to run a maneuver to avoid an accident but it just wasn't enough.

Prayers for Justin.

Ya know, that is a really good question, and I don't have an answer. You are still right though, contact or not the driver should have stopped.
