The mother of a Kentucky man who was fatally struck by a car while crossing the street is asking for justice.

"I want you to see the hurt that you caused, you need to see that hurt," Daniel Ray Logsdon II's mother, Patricia Bishop, said at a press conference, WLKY reports. "You took off on foot, not caring whether you killed him or not – you murdered my son."

Logsdon was hit by an SUV Friday evening while crossing the street after leaving his job at a nearby Taco Bell, WHAS11 reports. Bishop says her son, a father of two, loved his job and was on his way home.

"My guts wrenched out," Bishop told WLKY of the moment she learned of her son's death. "My heart broke – and I can't even think straight."

The driver allegedly fled the scene and the vehicle was found abandoned in a parking lot nearby, according to WDRB.
