LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police have found the truck they believe hit and killed cyclist Travis Christy.

Grade Lane was shut down for several hours just south of the airport after Travis Christy, 38, was killed. The accident happened just before 4 a.m. in the 6700 block of Grade Lane.

Police were called out to the scene after a body was found in a ditch.

His family says the only thing worse than his death is knowing how he died.

“I mean even if that outcome would not have been different, even if Travis would not lived if he had received help immediately, at least someone would have cared, and he would not have laid there in a ditch, alone”, said his sister Melissa Schaffner.  “We were just shocked that someone could leave a human being on the side of the road like he was an animal in a ditch”.

His family is asking anyone who knows anything about the driver or truck that hit the father of two to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to call 574-LMPD.
