Rider Dies A Month After Hit And Run

A Polk, Florida man died last week, nearly a month after being seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident.

Timmy Kelly, 47, was riding his 2009 Harley Davidson around 2 a.m. on November 13 when he collided with a GMC Sierra truck. According to police, the driver of the truck left the scene of the crash.

Russell Waldorff, Kelly’s stepson, said Kelly had used a car just hours earlier to pick up his daughter from a school dance. He took her home, returned the car and was driving his motorcycle when the accident occurred.

Lawyer John Liguori is representing the truck’s owners. He and his clients think the motorcycle struck the back of the truck. A representative for the Sheriff’s Office said the details of how the motorcycle accident happened are still under investigation.

Liguori will not name his clients. “We are extremely sad that the man suffered fatal injuries,” he said.

Kelly died in Lakeland Regional Medical Center’s palliative care unit, where he was unresponsive and being kept alive by tubes.

Kelly owned an air-conditioning business called Sure Central Air, and was an avid motorcycle rider.
