Cleveland, Ohio (WOIO)-A family of U.S. Army veterans who died from being injured in a hit-and-run accident in Cleveland on Memorial Day to the War Dead is still seeking answers and justice.
Giancar Lovaldes, 30, died a few days after the crash on Jennings Road in Old Brooklyn.
He was riding a motorcycle in the evening when he was hit by an unknown car.
According to police, the other drivers never stopped.
“It was left on the street like an animal,” said George Pegan, Valdes’ lifelong friend.
Pagans live next to where the Valdes family grew up. The victim’s father, Juan Carlos Valdes, still lives in his home in the Clark-Fulton district.
“This block wasn’t the same. It’s been quiet for the past two weeks. It’s not a sound,” said the heathen.
“I was really proud of him for everything he was doing,” said Juan Carlos Valdes. “My family was devastated. He was loved by so many people. My son was a bright man who wanted to live his life to the fullest.”
Valdes told 19 news on Monday that he hasn’t thought much about other drivers since the crash.
“I hope God gives me forgiveness for what he has done,” he said. “I can’t say I can do the same … because I’m not a god.”
He suggests that the more pressing issue is simply tracking the driver.
“If anyone is there who happens to see what happened, at least contact the authorities so we can learn the truth,” he said.
