(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Police Department confirmed Randy "Scoti" Hardin, 30, died Sunday evening after a motorcycle accident on King Hill Avenue.

Police said Hardin was driving a motorcycle when he collided with another vehicle. That vehicle then fled the scene of the accident.

Police said they do have a suspect in custody in connection to the accident, but have not released that suspect's name.

Hardin's sister, Shelby Mullen, said police had told her Hardin was brain dead at the scene of the accident, but he later died at the hospital.

"I thought it was fake," Mullen said. "It's still kind of a shock to me. I'm trying to just pretend it didn't happen for the moment until everyone else is okay."

Mullen said Hardin was married with three children.

"He was always the funniest person in the room," Mullen said. "He was a die hard Chiefs fan, and he loved his kids."

Police said the accident is still under investigation.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
