PHOENIX -- The family of a hit-and-run victim recently paid their respects to the emergency responders who tried to save their son.

Brian Chase’s mother, Stacy Serna, and her husband Mark visited emergency crews to provide them with cake and ice cream, and to thank them for working so hard to try to save their loved one.

“I think one of the first things I said was we need to find out who tried to help, it’s important for us to move on to say thank you,” said Serna.

Just before Chase lost his life he was able to have dinner with his mom.

Serna said she’s just happy she had one last moment with her son.

“It’s an amazing miracle that I had that closure,” said Serna.

Chase was killed on May 9 while riding his motorcycle on Camelback Road.

Police said a full sized truck hit Chase at 46th Ave. The driver, who is said to be a white male between 50 and 60 years old, reportedly got out of his vehicle and looked at Chase before driving off.

Police also said the driver was leaving the Discount Cab dispatch center. They believe he has a connection to the facility.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Silent Witness.
