RESEDA – The Los Angeles City Council has approved a $50,000 reward for information leading to the identity of a motorist police say intentionally ran over a 20-year-old Van Nuys man. The man hit, Peter Martinez, 20, of Van Nuys, later died from his injuries. The motorist was driving a 1995-1996 black four-door Honda Civic with tinted rear windows before 3 p.m. Thursday at White Oak Avenue near Wyandotte Street when he failed to stop for two pedestrians who were crossing the street, police said. Martinez, 20, and his brother, Alex Martinez, 18, were entering the center median when the suspect came close to hitting Peter Martinez. As the suspect drove by, the brothers yelled at the driver and the younger Martinez through a towel at the car in frustration. The driver then made a U-turn, sped toward Peter Martinez and hit him, before driving off. Peter Martinez was taken to a local hospital where he died Saturday. The car would have major damage to the front end and possibly the windshield. It has a partial license plate number of “4W—–.” The motorist is described as a male Hispanic or Middle Eastern, 30-40 years, with short, well-groomed black hair.The reward will be given out once a suspect is tried and convicted. Anyone with information is asked to call West Valley homicide detectives at (818) 374-7730. After hours contact the toll-free 24-hour anonymous tip line at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
