$10,000 Reward Offered in Fatal Hit-Run Accident
The parents of a 29-year-old man killed May 19 in a West Hollywood hit-and-run accident have offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the motorist involved.
Louis and Margaret Wood of Columbus, Ohio, arrived in Los Angeles last week to offer the reward regarding the death of Michael Wood, a West Hollywood resident and language student at California State University, Los Angeles.
The accident occurred about 11 p.m. at the corner of Fountain Avenue and Havenhurst Drive. Police said Wood was crossing Fountain with a bag of groceries on his way back to his apartment on Havenhurst when he was struck and killed.
Yellow Ford Mustang
Witnesses told investigators that while they did not see the accident, they saw the driver of a yellow Ford Mustang speed up Havenhurst toward Sunset Boulevard immediately after the accident.
Deputy George Moak of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said, however, that witnesses have offered conflicting descriptions of the motorist. According to some, the driver was a white woman with shoulder-length brown hair and wide-rimmed glasses. Others have said the driver was a man.
Moak said that deputies have no suspects and are continuing their investigation.
