CINCINNATI — Police were searching Friday for the driver who hit and killed a Cincinnati grandfather earlier that morning before fleeing the scene. The man’s family is pleading with the driver to come forward.
Investigators said a blue Acura or Honda hit Gerard Crumpley, 61, around 4:30 a.m. on Joseph Street in Bond Hill. He was at the edge of his driveway with a bicycle, family members said. It was unclear by Friday afternoon if he was riding the bike or standing with it.
“The bike was stuck under their car,” said Crumpley’s brother, Greg Crumpley. “The front tire was here with him. They had to get out and take it from out of the car and throw it.”
Crumpley’s family was working to help gather surveillance video from homes nearby.
Tanya Green said she was walking past and saw her childhood friend on the ground outside his home. She said a neighbor had already called 911.
“He opened his eyes, and I told him just hold on they’re on the way,” Green said. “They on they way. Because she said she had called 10 minutes before I got here, but it even took 10 more minutes for them to get here. But, I was holding his hand. And then, he just drifted on again, but I was right there. He didn’t die by himself.”
He lived at the home with his brother, Greg. Family members said the two helped take care of their mother there.
“She has dementia,” said Greg. “She’s going to ask me a million times, ‘What happened? Where’s he at?’.”
Crumpley was a father of two, grandfather of seven with three great-grandchildren and three surviving siblings.
“Everybody around here knew him because he was … Mr. Fix-It,” said Greg. “Everything everybody needed, he did it.”
The family said they want the city to install speed bumps on Joseph Street to protect others.
“They put them on the next street, but they never got here,” said Greg Crumpley.
Police said if you see a blue Honda or Acura with front-end damage, that could be the car involved in this crash.

MORGAN HILL, Calif. (KGO) — Face masks are hard to come by, even for health care workers. So, Morgan Hill-based bike company, Specialized, has been using its worldwide contacts, calling in favors, and spending millions of dollars to get face masks to medical workers.
Specialized CEO Mike Sinyard told me healthcare workers are the heroes of this pandemic.
He knows he is fortunate to have the wherewithal to secure so many masks, but encourages all of us to lend a helping hand to healthcare workers.
“How could you help them?” he asks. “Can you help them by preparing food, can you help them by taking care of their kids, because the kids will be home. Everything helps.”
Mask shipments have begun arriving at the company’s Morgan Hill headquarters, and among the first to get masks are local hospitals, including Watsonville Community Hospital.
