Reward for information in fatal Anaheim hit-and-run raised to $4000
ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A reward for information leading to arrest and conviction in a fatal Anaheim hit-and-run collision was raised from $1,000 to $4,000 Wednesday.
Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson, State Senator Lou Correa and Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait each agreed to contribute $1,000 toward the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver responsible for the death of Miranda Palacios. This brings the total award to $4,000. No public funds were used to donate to the reward.
Palacios was killed Feb. 8 as she crossed the street with her mother, 26-year-old Augi Hernandez, at Guinida Lane and Gilbert Street. Hernandez suffered serious injuries, including a broken back.
A 1995 Nissan Maxima involved in the crash had been reported stolen before the crash. It was found abandoned nearby, but the driver got away.
Anyone with information related to the case should contact the California Highway Patrol at (800) TELL-CHP. Anonymous tips can also be called in to Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS.
A fund has been set up to help the family pay for funeral services:
