Funeral services were held in Brooklyn Tuesday for a New York City FDNY EMT who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver.

Family, friends and colleagues gathered to bid a final farewell tor 27-year-old Kevin Liang, who was riding his motorcycle on the new Kosciuszko Bridge when an SUV hit him in late September.

Police say the driver of that vehicle then fled the scene.

He just passed the firefighters exam and was about to live his dream.

"The best part of his life was in front of him," cousin Maxwell Li said. "He was really blossoming into a man. He was very responsible and he had the support of his entire family, his entire community. Everyone was rooting for Kevin."

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information in the case.
