Jason Lummis was run down by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bike down Dexter-Pinckney Road on Wednesday night.
As a member of the Bell’s Brewery Quiring Cycling Team, Jason was riding home from work at Great Lakes Cycling and Fitness, when police say, he was hit from behind at the intersection of Fleming Road and Horseshoe Bend.
The impact of the crash tossed Jason and his bike into a drainage ditch, and the driver just kept going.
“He really thought he was going to die in that ditch, and he had to crawl to find his backpack and dial 911,” said Kathy Lummis, Jason’s wife.
Doctors at the University of Michigan say Jason suffered multiple fractures to his back and pelvis as well as a deep puncture wound.
