CICERO -- A hit-and-run bicycle crash took the life of 20-year-old man. It happened in Hamilton County just before 10 p.m Monday.

Nicholas Camp was riding southbound on Main Street, between Buckeye and Neal, when police say his left handle bar was clipped by a motorist.  He lost control and was found with his bike on top of him.

Camp was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Shelby Roberts says she and Camp were the proud parents of 9-month-old Evalynn.

"Now his little girl has to grow up without her dad because someone was careless," said Roberts.

Roberts says Camp was a talented  musician and an even better father.

"It's just crazy he won't see her first birthday or anything," said Roberts.

​There were no witnesses to the crash, and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department is asking for help in finding the driver who allegedly hit Camp.

"So far from working the scene, there's not much evidence . We are just tracking down leads as best as we can. If you know of a vehicle that needs to be moved or a vehicle that needs to be fixed, we encourage them to come forward ," said Sgt. Brian Niec.

    You will be missed dearly Nick. You were such a clown. Always making me laugh. Talked about your beloved daughter daily. Sharing her milestones. Such a proud daddy you were. Huge love for music. Dreaming of being a producer one day. You had a gift. Many talents. I hope your friends and family can embrace the love you had for others during their time of grief… You were the, ” I’d give the shirt off my back kinda guy”. My prayer for you is rest peacefully my dear. Watch over the ones you loved. Visit us often. Fill our hearts with gladness. . Help us rejoice for what God gives us everyday. I will think of you every time I visit my favorite fishing hole right there off Main street and smell the wild mint in the air. You will be missed by many, but never forgotten. Xoxoxo Jen
