LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A service for the victim of a recent hit and run crash will be held at the Catholic Action Center on Sunday.

John Oliver, 47, was hit while standing next to his bike on N. Limestone Street earlier this month, according to Lexington Police.

Officers are trying to determine the identity of two potential suspects seen in surveillance video from the night of the crash, according to an email from Sgt. Aaron Greenleaf.

The potential suspects are described as a white man and woman. The woman appeared to have her hair in dreadlocks, Greenleaf said. They were seen in a silver or gray Kia Sorento.

Oliver briefly stayed at the Catholic Action Center this year, according to Director Ginny Ramsey.

“Never had difficulties with him,” Ramsey said. “He was just struggling with his own life like so many folks here at the Catholic Action Center are.”

The service for Oliver will be held on Sunday at 1 p.m.
