RENO, Nev. (AP) — Secret Witness is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect wanted in connection with a fatal hit-and-run in Reno on North Virginia Street.

Police say a man was killed when he was struck by two different vehicles about 4:30 a.m. Monday while walking in a crosswalk in front of the Bonanza Casino.

Police say a 62-year-old woman driving a southbound vehicle struck the pedestrian, knocking him to the ground. She pulled over and called 911 for help before another car ran over the man.

Police say the second driver stopped, but then left the scene.

The first driver is cooperating with investigators but police say they've been unable to locate the second vehicle, described as a four-door, silver or gray passenger car.
