More than two months after Casey Kearns suffered the horrific injuries above, the driver who hit him hasn't been found.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office is renewing its appeal to find the culprit, revealing a $5,000 reward for information leading to a conviction.

Kearns, 36, of Andover, was struck by a vehicle just south of the G-Will Liquor store on the Round Lake Boulevard service drive in Andover at 8:22 p.m. on Jan. 28.

He was in intensive care for five weeks and is still in the hospital to this day, soon to be transferred to a long-term care facility where he'll stay for up to a year.

He suffered multiple fractures including every rib, both femurs in multiple places and internal injuries that required a tracheostomy.

"No witnesses have come forward and the driver who fled the scene has not been identified," the sheriff's office said. "Mr. Kearns' only recollection is that the vehicle that struck him was possibly a panel tuck, unknown color or description."

His family is offering a $5,000 reward, with Anoka County Sheriff James Stuart saying: "We ask that anyone with any information on this case step up and do the right thing.

"We will continue our investigation, but hope that the driver will also choose to do the right thing before we find them. The victim, and the victim’s family, deserve to have resolution in this case."

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Gabriel Lee at 763-324-5212.
