Reward Authorized For Information Related to Fatal Hit and Run

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion introduced by Supervisor Don Knabe to extend the offer of a $10,000 dollar reward for information regarding a Hit-and-Run incident in the City of Downey.

On May 20, 2011, a 58 year old Downey resident was struck by a car while walking in the roadway. The suspect immediately fled the scene, leaving the victim lying in the roadway.  Downey Fire personnel responded and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene. The suspect vehicle is described as a white SUV with collision damage to the front portion of the vehicle.

Investigators believe it would be beneficial to offer a reward in this case, which may prompt reluctant witnesses to come forward and provide information to identify the individual(s) responsible for this crime.
