PORT CHARLOTTE Fla.- A family still in shock and disbelief after a 23-year-old Port Charlotte man was killed Sunday morning in a hit and run crash.
Gene and Alec Wells are holding on to the memories of 23-year-old Kyle Wells, but can't help but think about those they'll never get to make.
I never even got a chance to see my son play drums, play in a band, something he's very passionate about. I don't get a chance to see that." Father, Gene Wells said.
" He was a great musician, he was a great friend to everybody. Everybody that met him loved him, he had a huge heart and he was loved by a lot of people." Brother Alec Wells said.
Now, those loved ones look at pictures and feel nothing but pain.
" It is something that I never fathomed or thought I would ever have to do and watch and witness, I was horrified." Gene Wells said.
Kyle's family said he was walking home from a friends house early Sunday morning on Vessels road in Port Charlotte when he was hit by what FHP believes to be a Mercury Grand Marquis. The driver, fled.
" To know that the person who was cold and un-caring and to walk away without a conscience and not give a care in the world about what its done to my life, my son's life, Kyle's mother's life and the family he has hurt." Gene Wells said.
" All I wanted was a kind friend to help my son out, a kind person. We would do it in a heart beat for anybody I couldn't imagine leaving someone on the side of the road." Gene Wells said.
