There's a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person who fatally hit a retired teacher and then drove away.
On Nov. 27, 2016 around 5 p.m., Barbara Mahigel was out with her husband celebrating their 52nd wedding anniversary when she was hit by a car at Nicollet Avenue South and 43rd Street in Minneapolis.
After hitting Mahigel, the driver of the dark-colored sedan continued on northbound Nicollet Avenue South without stopping. Mahigel was taken to the hospital, where she died the next day.
Despite pleas from Mahigel's family for the person who killed the 74-year-old woman to come forward, police haven't had any luck tracking down the suspect.
Police canvassed the area talking to residents and business owners, and are hoping someone will still come forward to help identify either the suspect or the vehicle.
Anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible could be eligible for a $5,000 reward from Crime Stoppers Minnesota, the Minneapolis Police Department announced Wednesday.
If anyone has information regarding the incident, you can contact Crime Stoppers and leave an anonymous tip. You can also submit a tip by calling 1-800-222-8477 or text Tip674 and your information to 274637.
