Air Jordan 7s but has scribbled some words
John Byro joined the Marines after 9/11 and survived two tours in Iraq. But on Oct. 27, as the 29 year old headed from the Twin Cities to his home in Madelia, in southern Minnesota, he nearly died when his Harley Davidson motorcycle collided with a vehicle that then left the scene.

“John had the right of way,” said Dave Byro, 55, a farmer from the Madelia area. “The other vehicle . had a stop sign.” Another motorist stopped to help after finding Byro about 10 that night.
Byro’s friends have offered a $3,000 reward for information leading to the identification and possible prosecution of the hit and run driver.
“It is so important that this person come forward,” David Byro sad. “I can’t believe anybody could live with themselves” without stopping to help or coming forward now, he said.
According to the State Patrol, the vehicle may have been a light colored passenger vehicle or SUV that will have damage to the rear.
