WHY:
To announce a $50,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the hit-and-run drivers who killed 22-year-old Thomas Robert Price.

On Saturday, December 2, 2012, around 2:15 a.m., Price was struck by a car while crossing Reseda Boulevard at Bessemer Street, in the San Fernando Valley.  While the victim lay motionless on the roadway, a second car struck him.  Tragically, Price died of his injuries at a local hospital.

The first car is described as a possible 1997/1998 dark grey SUV with a 4 to 5 inch lift kit.  The second car was a compact passenger vehicle.  Both drivers sped away from the scene without stopping, providing identification or rendering aid.

Investigators have run out of leads and are hopeful that a monetary reward will serve as an incentive for additional information to develop so that this case can be solved.

Visuals will include a photograph of Mr. Price and a copy of the video depicting the collisions.
