A vigil was held Wednesday for a 64-year-old man who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Hemet the day before.
The crash occurred about 6:20 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Florida Avenue and Mayflower Street.
The victim, identified by family members as Danny Silva, was walking along Florida Avenue when he was struck by a white SUV. The driver did not stop after the crash. He died about 20 minutes later.
Family and friends gathered at the scene told KTLA that Silva lived about a block away and had two adult children. He was a retired house painter.
"My heart is in pain," the victim's brother Silvia Perez said. "My brother was a good man."
Silva's cousin, Ofelia Saldana, said his family wants the driver to come forward.
"He was a human person and you just don't hurt people like that," she said.
Anyone with information about the crash can call the Hemet Police Department at 951-765-2400.
