To The Daily Sun,
To all the residents of Bristol, I am reaching out to ask for your help.
Chris Edwards was a resident of Bristol for three years. He worked in your town, he was your neighbor and he had made Bristol his home. In May of 2014, his life was changed forever. He was hit by a car while riding his bike to work. He worked at a local manufacturing company in your town. He sustained multiple injuries, the most severe being a back injury that required surgery. Presently he lives with constant pain and will never be the same healthy man. He is not able to do certain activities that he once enjoyed.
Why I am asking for your help, is the driver of the vehicle that hit him, drove away. There was a witness who saw the whole thing, but for some unknown reason he decided not to testify. He didn't want to be the "heel" of the town. This witness knows the man who is responsible. Who knows how many others do as well. Well, the driver should have done the decent thing and stop in the first place. The witness should stand up and do the right thing as well. Chris Edwards deserves justice. Not only for the medical bills he has from these injuries, but from the daily pain he endures.
I am asking the community of Bristol to step up and come forward with information to make this man take responsibility for his actions. Please contact the Bristol Police Department and speak to Officer Joseph Vogel, he is very familiar with this case. The number to Bristol Police Department is 603-744-6320.
Chris Edwards is a kind, friendly, very decent man, who would help anyone in need. He deserves some justice. I will leave you all with this thought: What if it was your husband, brother, mother, father or child? Would you not want justice?
Essex Jct, Vt.
