WHITE SETTLEMENT -- It was a hit-and-run that has people in White Settlement honoring a hero.
Trevor Gage was riding his motorcycle in Fort Worth when he was hit by a pickup and killed. After suffering a head injury and fighting for his life Saturday night, he was pronounced dead the next morning. Police are searching for the suspect, a male reportedly driving an F-150 pickup with extensive damage to the right front side.
Gage leaves behind family and friends who are wrapping their minds around the tragedy.
"He always greeted me with a smile and shook my hand and it's just a terrible tragedy for this city and the family," Mayor Ronald A. White told NewsFix.
His wife, Brandie Gage, is a stay-at-home mom raising three kids. One suffers from an intestinal disorder that's required several surgeries and daily home visits from a nurse.
A GoFundMe Page has raised over $12,000 in less than 24 hours.
The White Settlement Fire Department's flag was at half-staff Monday, honoring Gage's eight years of service.
Long time resident, Alan Price, told NewsFix about the day Gage saved his life.
"It was a matter of life and death and he came out in the ice storm and revived me and rushed me to the ER where they operated on me within that hour, " Price explained.
Looks like Trevor is still saving lives. His chief posted a photo on Facebook showing his team taking Trevor away for his last life-saving mission:
