No suspect one month after hit-and-run; victim still suffering

- The past month has been a nightmare for a man who was hit by a truck and left on the road with severe injuries.

"I just still can't think how somebody can treat another human being the way they did to me," said Dwayne Fredrick, who was the victim of a hit and run last month.

The accident took place on Cleveland and Westland, just a block away from Howard Avenue.

Surveillance video released by the Tampa Police Department shows Fredrick riding his bike around 1:30 a.m. on March 18. The video shows a pickup truck slam into him as he was crossing the road.

The driver of the truck didn't stop, allowing the truck to roll over Fredrick who was caught underneath.

A good Samaritan saw Fredrick laying on the ground and called 911.

Fredrick has undergone multiple surgeries and is hardly able to move his legs and upper body.

He hopes the person responsible is caught soon.

But in the meantime, he's focusing on recovering and getting his life back.
