Fairfield man critically injured by Bridgeport hit-in-run driver pleads for suspect to come forward

A Fairfield man who suffered critical injuries in a Bridgeport hit-and-run is pleading for the driver to surrender to police.
Akio Case, 46, says his doctors told him it was a miracle he survived after he was hit by a car while driving his motorcycle back in June.
His wife Regina says she will never get over the experience of arriving on scene and seeing her husband suffering massive internal injuries.
"All I could hear was him screaming and yelling and I knew it was pain, 'cause that's not how he usually is," Regina says.
The couple says the experience has made them deeply grateful for everything they have in life, especially each other.
The collision took place at Berkshire Avenue and East Main Street around 10:30 p.m. June 25, with the motorcycle slamming into a telephone pole.
Akio says he believes the driver of the hit-and-run car was operating a blue-colored Audi sedan.
"By taking off and just leaving me for dead was not the right thing to do. I would appreciate it if you just came forward, owned up to your mistake, and we can move forward from there."
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Bridgeport police at 203-576-TIPS.
