Family in pieces after motorcyclist is killed in hit-and-run crash

(WPMI) A family is in pieces after finding out their loved one was killed in a hit- and-run crash on I-10 Saturday morning.

A family is in pieces after finding out their loved one was killed in a hit- and-run crash on I-10 Saturday morning. Now they're speaking out to Local 15 as police search for the people responsible for leaving Paul Phipps of Chipley, Florida behind.

"Give me and his family and our friends some closure, he didn't deserve this," said Phipps’ fiancé Jerry Lynn Sisson.

Sisson tells Local 15 she lost her world Saturday morning. Paul Phipps was the love of her life, her fiancé for five years who she planned to marry in 2018.

“He was my everything, I feel so lost,” she said.

Sisson says Phipps was headed to Mobile on a motorcycle ride with his friends Saturday. They were taking a trip to see battleship park, However, a collision on this interstate took his life just two weeks before his 36th birthday.

"I keep thinking he's going to call or send me a text and say baby it's all right," said Sisson.

Daphne Police officials say that the driver of an SUV that collided with Phipps’ motorcycle left the scene of the accident. The suspect vehicle is a white SUV, possibly a Tahoe with Texas tags. The driver of that vehicle is described as a white female in her late 40's or 50's and had a white male passenger. This accident also included an 18 wheeler that also left the scene.

Phipps leaves behind four brothers, a fiancé and a father all broken by details leading to Paul’s death.

"It just breaks my heart that someone could not care enough regardless of if it was their fault or not, they could have just stopped," said Phipps’ brother Glen Guinand.

"I just wish they would give us some closure, I just I feel so alone," said Sisson.

ALDOT told Local 15 that their traffic cameras do not record, leaving the hopes of finding those who ran from the scene are caught with tips from those who witnessed it.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Daphne Police Department at (251) 621-9100.
