BATON ROUGE - A man is in a coma, a week after being hit by a car that never stopped.

Edwin Davis was two blocks from his home last Monday, when he was hit. He was found lying in the middle of the street, near his bike. Family members say he's in serious condition.

"The prognosis isn't good," said his sister Billie Davis. "Even if he does recover, there will be permanent brain damage."

The incident happened on E. Washington Street at Colorado Street. Baton Rouge Police say it happened between 3 and 4 p.m. August 25, and they have little to go on.

"He rode his bike all the time," said his sister. "Generally he was going to the store and back home."

It's unclear whether Davis was riding his bike, or walking along side of it, but family members say his bike was found in perfect condition.

"He was walking in broad daylight, down the street he walks down all the time," said his niece Angela Lomas. "It's the kind of neighborhood where everyone's outside, everyone sees what's going on. Somebody saw what happened."

Anyone with information is asked to call the police.
