Police still searching for person of interest in hit-and-run

CINCINNATI — It’s been more than 100 days since 35-year-old Mical Landrum suffered a traumatic brain injury after he was hit by a car while riding his motorcycle.

Surveillance footage captured the driver police believe is responsible for the hit-and-run, but no one has come forward to identify the person. Landrum’s family and friends renewed their call for prayers and answers Wednesday by holding a balloon release at UC Medical Center, where he underwent major surgery.

“They are putting the side of his skull that was removed back in,” said DaJuanda Landrum-Tate, Landrum’s mother.

Landrum was riding his motorcycle Sept. 27 when a driver knocked him into the intersection of Ezzard Charles Drive and Winchell Avenue before running away from the scene. Landrum-Tate said her son’s recovery has been long and extensive. His family said he was doing everything right when he was hit out of nowhere by a driver
