The family of a motorcyclist who was killed as the result of a hit and run last December is hoping someone will come forward with the information needed to arrest the driver who caused his death.
San Antonio Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information about the accident that claimed the life of 49-year-old Guillermo Benavides.
"I'm still waiting for him to pull up and open the door and come in," said Lydia Benavides, the victim's wife.
Benavides was on his motorcycle waiting at the light at Nassau and West on December 19, 2012 when he was hit by what witnesses said was a Silver Chrysler 300.
"He was just standing there waiting to turn when that Chrysler 300 came and hit him from behind, ran him over and took off," Benavides said.
Guillermo Benavides was critically injured but he survived several days before family members made the difficult decision to remove him from life support.
In the months following his death Lydia and her son William have been frustrated with the lack of progress on the case and have attempted to track down the driver on their own.
"We talk to people in the neighborhood to see if they know anything, heard anything, it's just been very hard for me," Benavides said.
Their efforts have turned up a possible suspect, but no arrest has been made.
At this point, their best hope for justice is for someone to call police and confirm what they already believe.
"I mean I could go knock on the door, I know who did it," William Benavides said. "That's all we're asking for to call Crime Stoppers and just don't tell me, tell them so we can end this."
The person who ran Benavides over will face a charge of failure to stop and render aid resulting in death.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect. To leave a tip, call 210-224-STOP.
