Today, investigators have renewed their appeal for help to find the driver involved.

"Twelve months on, we are still determined to find the person responsible and finally bring closure for Johnnie who has endured months of recovery from injuries sustained," Springwood acting sergeant Cathy Brown said.

Police believe a white Ford Ranger or Mazda cab-chassis utility with damage to the passenger side mirror might hold the key to identifying the driver.

"Someone out there knows something, and we are appealing to them to come forward, no matter how small they may think the information is," act sgt Brown said.

They have urged anyone with dashcam footage to contact police.
