Family remembers the life of man killed in hit-and-run
MOBILE, Ala. -- A is family heartbroken after a man is killed in a hit-and-run accident.
Yesterday afternoon, they got a call confirming their loved one, 36-year-old Paul Phipps, was the motorcylist killed in the tragic crash Saturday morning on I-10.
Phipps' brother, Glenn, told Local 15 that Paul was a corrections officer in Chipley, Florida and was just promoted to Sargent.
He is survived by four brothers and his father.
Family members tell us he loved his Harley Davidson motorcycle, saying it was like his baby. They can't believe they spoke with him just hours before he took off on the ride that ended his life.
"I broke down I complete lost it and broke down for about five to six hours," Glenn said. "He was the most kindhearted amazing person he would give a person he just met the shirt off his back or the last dollars out of his wallet."
Right now officers with the Daphne Police Department are working to find out exactly happened in this hit and run collision.
They say at this time they are searching for the drivers of an SUV and an 18-wheeler both involved in this crash that took off.
Officers are looking for a white woman in a white SUV, possibly a Tahoe with taxes tags. They say she's in her late 40s or early 50s and that she was joined by a white male in her passenger seat.
On Local 15 at 10 we'll bring you the latest in this investigation plus an emotional interview with his family remembering the man Paul Phipps was.
