CLEARWATER - Clearwater Police released a picture of the truck they police say Christopher Weed was driving when he hit a Clearwater couple on a tandem bicycle early Monday morning, before he took off.
Rob Lemon, 25, died from his injuries, and Hilary Michalak, 27, is still in critical condition.
Weed, 29, tried to bond out of this jail at his first appearance, but the judge made sure that didn't happen, raising his total bond to $125,000.
Now, police are asking anyone who may have been driving on Clearwater roads that morning to think back, hoping they may have seen something.
"Anybody who might have seen him driving before the accident, around 6 a.m., or anybody who saw him driving after the accident, call us," Rob Shaw, Clearwater Police Spokesman said.
Charged in the hit and run crash, Weed made his first appearance in court Wednesday, with his attorney and mother by his side, refusing to make any sort of comment.
Clearwater Police say they received a tip from an anonymous caller who gave them Weed's name late Monday night.
Then Weed showed up at the Clearwater Police station Tuesday morning.
"Not to turn himself in, not to say he had been involved in this accident, not to take responsibility for the accident, but simply to say my vehicle may have been involved," Shaw said.
While police say Weed claims to have blacked out after leaving his job at Shepard's on the Beach the night of the crash, they hope you remember more.
"The bottom line is, after the accident, he may have had to pull over and if you passed by you might have first thought it was a disabled vehicle, but he was involved in something more egregious than that," Shaw said.
If you have information on this case call Clearwater Police at (727) 562-4242.
