$50,000 Reward Offered in Christmas Day Hit & Run NR09208bb

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding a car used in a hit-and-run that struck a pedestrian and left the scene.

On December 25, 2008 at about 5:10 a.m., a car traveling north on Reseda Boulevard crossed the southbound lanes and hit a pedestrian walking westbound on Reseda south of Devonshire Boulevard.  The victim is a 33-year-old female that is now paralyzed because of her injuries from the hit-and-run.

The car that hit the victim left the front bumper at the scene and is believed to be a dark green 1995-1997 Mercury Grand Marquis. A picture of what Detectives believe the hit-and-run vehicle looks like is attached.

The Los Angeles City council has approved a $50,000 reward for information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime.

Los Angeles Police Department Valley Traffic Division detectives are handling the investigation.  Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact Detective William Bustos at 818-644-8021 or Officer Arturo Covarrubias at 818-644-8025. During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips. When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
