LAPD asks for help finding car that killed judge's son

The Los Angeles Police Department said it believes it has identified the type of auto involved in a hit-and-run that killed a federal court judge's son last December.

Police said they are seeking a light colored Volvo 740 Series Wagon manufactured in the early 1990s.

Police are circulating a photo of a Volvo similar to the one that struck 23-year-old David Pregerson as he walked home on Chautauqua Boulevard north of Borgos Place on Dec. 27.

Pregerson, a UCLA graduate living in Pacific Palisades, died of his injuries four days later.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Dean D. Pregerson, the victim's father, asked anyone with information about the accident to come forward. 

The Pregerson family and the city of Los Angeles have each put up half of a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the driver. 

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call LAPD Det. John Skaggs at (213) 382-9470.
