Community comes together to help hit-and-run victim

Posted: Updated:
Jeanerette, La. -

The GoFundMe account set up to help a Jeanerette man with Cerebral Palsey has exceeded the $3,500 goal after KATC's report aired Wednesday night in our 6:00 newscast.  

Chad Leblanc was riding his trike home after a night out with friends when he was struck on Main Street in Jeanerette. The strike pushed Leblanc nearly 40 feet where he landed face down into the concrete. Leblanc was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. His trike, which was damaged when Leblanc was hit, was his only means of transportation.  A friend of LeBlanc's says the extra money that was raised will be used to buy accessories and lights for the bike, and to start a savings account. 

No arrests have been made in connection with this case.

The GoFundMe was started to pay for a new bike. You can contribute to Leblanc's fund by clicking here.

KATC's Josh Meny spoke with the family who say they hope the person who hit Chad surrenders to police. Read that original story here.
