Wife seeks answers after husband found severely injured in possible hit-and-run
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS 12) —
A woman is desperate for answers after her husband, who is now in the fight of his life, was found in the middle of a busy intersection in what is likely a hit-and-run in broad daylight.
Andre Bellemare, 64, an avid motorcyclist, is in trauma ICU at Delray Medical Center.
He has severe injuries in his head and shoulder, including broken ribs.
“Luckily, he had his helmet on because that really saved his life,” said Angela Bellemare, Andre’s wife.
What exactly caused them is still a mystery. Angela said with his injuries this bad, doctors believe he was hit by a car.
An ambulance travelling on Jog Rod and Boynton Beach Boulevard on Friday, March 31, around 12 p.m. spotted Bellemare.
“He landed on the median on the left side. The damage on the bike is on the left side, and they had to pick up the motorcycle to take his leg out,” said Angela.
For almost three weeks, Angela has been going to nearby stores to check their surveillance footage, but no luck.
There is also a camera mounted on the traffic light pole at the intersection, but it doesn’t record.
Detectives are working this as a possible hit-and-run, but the lack of evidence is posing a major problem.
Since this happened in broad daylight, Angela hopes someone out there has answers they need.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office at (561) 688-3400.
CBS12 asked authorities about the traffic camera only monitoring and not recording. They referred us to the Traffic Division of Palm Beach County. We’ll be sure to pass along their answers as soon as we get them.
