Clarksville man left for dead after being hit by car

Clarksville man recovering after hit & run

CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) – A man continues to recovering after being hit by a car while walking and was left for dead.

Police say 27-year old Harb Harbison was walking on Lewis and Clark Parkway near Eastern Boulevard earlier this month when he was hit by a car that kept going.

In the early morning hours of October 3, Shirley says Harbison left their apartment and walked to a nearby store, something he does often, but he never made it.

“I called jails, I called everywhere, because I didn't know where he was, I even contacted ex-girlfriends, I'm like what's going on,” Shirley stated.

Police say Harbison was hit while attempting to cross at a crosswalk, the driver sped off, hitting him so hard it knocked his shoes off leaving Harbison in a pool of blood.

“He was just lying in the road with his face busted open and his legs are broken and I can't imagine just seeing that and being like I hit somebody and I'm going to leave the scene, like why wouldn't you stop, that's someone's kid,” Shirley said through tears.

Shirley showed pictures she took to the police as she attempted to make a missing person’s report after not hearing from her fiancé.

“Do you want that blood on your hands, do you want that your whole life to think man – this is what I did to this guy and his family,” Shirley asked.

Harbison spent a few days in ICU at University Hospital, he's uninsured and far from being back to his regular self.

The biggest and long lasting effect is no justice, as no one has come forward with any leads.

With so many businesses on Lewis and Clark Parkway, police say they are still looking for surveillance video.

Harbison is still dealing with a lot of bruises and abrasions and seizures because of his injuries. If you have any information call Clarksville police Tip Line at (812) 284-4636.
