Authorities Offer $50,000 Reward to Locate Fatal Hit-and-Run Driver

The surviving family members are slowly losing their hope of acquiring justice for a relative who died in a hit-and-run accident, especially after authorities failed to apprehend the driver at fault.

Authorities said they are willing to hand out a $50,000 reward to anyone who can give information that will lead to the capture of the driver who struck and killed 59-year-old Carlos Perez.

According to reports, Perez was crossing Alameda Street in Los Angeles when he was fatally hit last April 1.

The crash’s impact damaged Perez’s leg. He was announced dead at the accident area.

Pieces of evidence that were taken at the scene show that the vehicle involved in the accident may have been a 2005-06 dark colored Infiniti G35 sedan that has tinted windows.

In addition, the vehicle likely sustained damage to its windshield, hood, and front right fender, reports said.

Authorities and Perez’s wife and children are asking for the public’s help in locating the whereabouts of the hit-and-run driver.
