NORTH ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The family of a North St. Louis man killed in a hit-and-run is calling for the driver to come forward.

Derrick Hudson, 58, was killed on June 24 in the 3900 block of Riverview Boulevard.

Police say a tan or gold colored SUV hit Hudson around 9:00 pm, but never stopped.

Terrell Hudson, Derrick Hudson's nephew was one of the last to see his uncle alive.

He said a passing driver identified herself as a nurse, and tried CPR to resuscitate him. But it was too late.

“I don't know if I was holding his right hand or his left hand, but when she said he had a weaker pulse and then I felt his pulse, I knew right then it was like he was done," said Terrell Hudson.

Hudson leaves behind three children, seven grandchildren, and an entire family that hopes to get justice for him.

Aja Owens, Derrick Hudson’s cousin said, “Whoever did it knows that they left somebody behind. You know that you hit something. It just happened to be a human being. It just happened to be our family member."
