Arthur Skinner thrown off motocycle in hit and run, now in critical condition

Family of victim hopes to find driver responsible

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -  Recovery is a nightmare for Arthur Skinner, unable to move or speak in his hospital bed.

"A lot of pain, he's frustrated, confused, he doesn't remember what happened," said Art's wife Victoria.

Victoria tears up thinking about the hit-and-run that put her husband in the ICU at Delray Medical Center.

In the early morning hours of November 8th, Art was riding westbound on Forest Hill Boulevard about to pass under I-95. FHP says that's when he was side-swiped three times by a silver car.

"It looked as if they bounced off each other, and hit two more times and he hit the curb and went airborne," said Victoria.

The passenger side mirror actually broke off of the car when Art was hit. Victoria ran the part number inside the mirror in hopes that would reveal what kind of car hit her husband.

"It's a 2009 Honda Civic Silver in color," said Victoria.

That's still not enough to find the driver who fled the scene. Victoria hopes someone who saw something will call FHP at (561) 357-4040 and help solve the case.

"I'm not looking for vengeance, I'm looking for justice. I realize it's a slim chance but the more eyes out there looking for this car the better the chance," said Victoria.

Meanwhile Art remains in critical condition, showing some improvement every day.
