The driver of the motorcycle, only identified as Steve, was seriously hurt. As a result of the crash, he had to have his right leg amputated above the knee.

“Somebody needs to put themselves in Steve's shoes and step up and do the right thing,” Steve's friend Dan Rogers told 9NEWS last month. "If that person was to walk through [Steve’s] door and said ‘I did this’ he'd thank them for doing the right thing. I guarantee it.”

Video captured by nearby security cameras showed the motorcycle sparking as it slid down the roadway. The driver of the car never stopped. Based on the video and evidence at the scene police believe it was a 2006 to 2008 Honda Civic.
