Police Monday circulated photos and video of a truck believed to be involved in a hit-and-run crash that severely injured a man last week, and asked the public for help identifying its driver.

The crash happened about noon on Jan. 4, when a 47-year-old pedestrian was struck while fixing a bicycle near Nevin Avenue and East Adams Boulevard, in the South Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The truck, described as an early 1990s model white Chevrolet, had been traveling west on Adams Boulevard when it struck the man, according to the LAPD. The suspect then fled the scene and failed to stop to render aid and identify himself or herself.

The pedestrian was taken to a hospital with severe injuries, the department said.

A $25,000 reward is available for anyone who can provide information about the crash that leads to the suspect’s arrest and conviction, or to a civil resolution, LAPD said. Anyone with information can call Central Traffic Detectives at 213-833-3713.
