Kenneth Hamilton was riding his motorcycle home from work at about 5:50 a.m. when he was struck by a car at the corner of Soto Street and Lancaster Avenue Boyle Heights, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Investigators need help identifying and locating the driver of the late 1990s model gray or silver 4-door Honda Civic DX that struck Hamilton.

The driver never stopped or rendered aid to Hamilton, who died at the scene, according to investigators.

Hamilton was a father of three and an assistant baseball coach at Santiago High School in Corona.

“Someone out there knows something, saw something or may even know the driver who fled,” said Chief Probation Officer Jerry Powers, “The reward money is a reminder that Los Angeles has not forgotten, the LAPD has not forgotten and that this crime must be solved and the driver brought to justice.”

Anyone with information was asked to call LAPD Detective Michael Kaden at 213-972-1837.
