Victim of hit and run speaks out

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - For the very first time, we are hearing from the Fargo man who was run over and left for dead nearly a week ago. Justin Bohmer invited us into his room at MeritCare where he is recovering from some serious injuries.

Justin says he doesn't know what happened between the time he left his friends place and the next morning when he woke up in the hospital. He sustained a cut to the head, three broken vertebrae and a broken right arm.

After suiting up in a brace, he proves he is recovering quickly, and able to get around on his own. It was last Wednesday when Justin spent the night playing music at a downtown bar. He went to a friends place and then left for home around 2 or 2:30 in the morning.

That's when he was mowed down by a hit and run driver. A passerby found Justin in the middle of 8th Street, bleeding, at around 4:45 in the morning.

“I don't remember anything about it still. I woke up here.”

Reporter: How about anger toward the person who did this to you?

“No not really. I guess they should have, I wish they would have stopped, but they didn't do that so that's on them.”

The reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who ran over Bohmer is up to 5 thousand dollars. Donations are being accepted at any Gate City Bank or you can send donations or cards to Justin's Reward Fund, in care of Dan Bohmer. If you have any information, you're asked to call Fargo Police.
