Funeral services will be held this weekend for a motorcyclist killed Thursday in a hit and run accident. 

The funeral for 55-year-old Monte Wampler will be held Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Ralls. Wampler died Thursday night at UMC from his injuries after a car hit his motorcycle at the intersection of Avenue D and 50th Street.

Police say the driver of the car, 21-year-old Rochelle Ranson, fled the scene and allegedly hit a pedestrian. From that, Ranson apparently hit another car and fled that scene as well. 

Ranson is currently in the Lubbock County Jail, but no charges have been filed.
