INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 23, 2015) - Police are looking for the driver of a Blue Hummer who ran a Red light and smashed into 32 year-old Eric Angleton’s car late Sunday night, leaving him in critical condition.

“It is hard to see my baby boy; I don’t care if he is 32. He is now lying in intensive care, unresponsive,” said the victim’s mother Gail Angleton.

The driver of the Blue Hummer ran away from the scene, leaving Angleton fighting for his life and trapped inside of his car in the ditch.

The Angletons are praying their son will recover after a hit and run accident left him in critical condition Sunday night.

“This is just such a tragedy. We don`t know if he is going to be the same when he pulls out of this. We just hope that everything goes well,” said the victim’s father Ron Angleton.

Eric Angleton is now in intensive care after police say a blue Hummer went through a Red light near 38th Street and Kessler Boulevard and smashed into the driver side of Angleton’s car, pushing it into a nearby ditch, where the 32 year-old computer programmer was trapped until police arrived.

The driver of the Hummer ran away, but left his car at the scene.

“Obviously we have a big portion of that investigation that suspect vehicle was left at the scene. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene, so we are looking for that individual,” said IMPD Officer Christopher Wilburn.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is currently running the plates of the Blue 2005 Hummer H3, which witnesses say was traveling at least 80 miles an hour.

The Angleton family the family hopes someone comes forward with information.

“He would have never hurt anyone, he always helped people. For the person that did this we hope that you are sleeping well tonight,” said Ron Angleton.

If you have any information on the incident, please call IMPD or Crime Stoppers.
