EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Las Cruces police are hoping a newly released video and the Las Cruces Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 will generate information that helps identify the driver responsible for Saturday’s hit-and-run crash that injured a 37-year-old woman.
According to a release, traffic investigators obtained a video of the hit-and-run vehicle from a transit bus camera.
In the video, the hit-and-run driver can be seen traveling south on Walton Blvd. moments before the crash.
The video appears to show a 2000 model gold Honda Accord with an aftermarket front passenger-side fender that is either black or dark brown.
Investigators are analyzing the video and hope to obtain additional information that helps further identify the hit-and-run vehicle and its driver, a release said.
As previously reported, the crash occurred shortly before 2 p.m. on March 7. Investigators learned a 37-year-old woman was driving a motorized scooter when she got hit by the vehicle.
Anyone with information that can help police identify the driver, or knows the whereabouts of the hit-and-run vehicle, is asked to call Las Cruces police at (575) 526-0795.
