BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - More than a week after a hit and run accident left a man in a coma, his family has decided to take him off life support to see if he can make it.

Edwin Davis, 55, of Baton Rouge, was found on East Washington Street on August 25 suffering from critical injuries. It happened not far from his home on Colorado Street.

Davis is still fighting for his life, but family members described his condition as poor. Relatives and police are desperately seeking information about the accident and are asking for the public's help in finding the person responsible.

Investigators said Davis was walking his bicycle across Washington near Colorado when he was hit by a car. He suffered numerous injuries, including a fractured skull. Police are at a standstill with no clear description of the car or who was driving it.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
