Family Of Fatal Hit-And-Run Victim On Old Todds Road Seeks Donations For Services

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - The family of a man who police believe was killed on Old Todds Road is trying to raise money to cover funeral expenses.

The body of Aungra L. Edwards, 38, of Lexington was discovered Sunday morning near Old Todds and Ashby Glen Place.

His family has set up a GoFundMe site here seeking donations.

"I'm just tired," said Aungra's mother, Hattie Edwards. "And I want my baby back, I need my baby back."

Hattie told LEX 18 that she saw the scene on Old Todd's Road on Sunday as she left for church, but she never imagined those flashing lights were for her son. 

Lexington police say a neighbor heard the crash about 1:30 a.m. and saw a truck fleeing the scene.

His body was found around 7 a.m.

"They left my baby six hours by hisself, without a call," said Hattie. 

Police described the truck as a 2002-2005 silver Dodge Ram pickup with damage to the passenger side headlamp and light assembly, in addition to paint damage.

Hattie and her surviving sons ask that the person responsible come forward. 

She is now planning a funeral that she cannot afford, but she told LEX 18 that she knows God will help pull her through this devastating time. 

"God's not gonna let it end like that. I know He's not," she said. 

The Fayette County Coroner says Edwards died from multiple blunt force injuries.

Lexington Police are asking anyone who has any information related to this crime to call them at 859-258-3663.
