NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- A Norfolk man is asking for help after he said a car hit him while he was on his moped.

That man, Raymond Whitaker, is the brother of world champion boxer Pernell "Sweet Pea" Whitaker.

Raymond said he was riding his moped on Virginia Beach Boulevard near Military Friday night. He said he flew off the moped and landed on the ground near the Olive Garden right off Virginia Beach Boulevard.

"I tumbled, landed 15 yards away from my bike," said Raymond.

While others stopped to help, the black car he said hit him took off.

"I thought he was going to stop just to check up on me to see if I was alright but he kept on going," he said.

His sister, Monique Whitaker, was one of the first to see him after it happened.

"He could barely walk when he came towards me so I knew something was wrong," she said.

She was concerned and upset after Raymond told her what happened.

"That's a life and people need to start caring about people's lives," said Monique.

"I thank God I'm here, really. I really thank God for that," said Raymond.

He said he doesn't want to press charges, but would like to speak to the person who was driving the car.
