Rewarding $50,000 for hit and run information

Councilman Bernard Parks and police announced a $50,000 reward for anyone that has information that can help the LAPD investigation surrounding a hit and run on Crenshaw Blvd. ATVN's Anna Sterling reports. 

City Councilman Bernard Parks and police announced today for a $50,000 reward for information about a hit-and-run driver who killed Diane Dupree on October 10. Police are offering the reward to help them arrest and prosecute the killer.

Police say Dupree was crossing Crenshaw Boulevard and 63rd Street when the driver ran her over and the driver did not stop to identify himself, nor did anyone stop to help her. After the accident, police found Dupree’s body lying on the street. She later died from injuries. Dupree is the mother of LAPD Officer Dontae Phillips.

Surveillance video indicated the car as a medium Toyota, Honda or similar vehicle. Investigators hope that someone who has information will come forward. Anyone with information can call the LAPD Southern Traffic Division at 323-421-2500.
