The victim was believed to have run into the intersection against a red light at the time of the crash, Castillo said. Witnesses told police they believe he was was possibly trying to catch a bus, something Martinez confirmed her ex-husband did every morning. Castillo urged pedestrians who find themselves running late to wait for another bus, which is usually just a few minutes behind. “It’s better to lose a minute of your life than to lose your life in a minute,” Castillo said. The city of Los Angeles automatically posts a $50,000 reward for help leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible in such cases, Campos said Martinez is hoping the driver will turn himself or herself in. “I know accidents happen but please come forward,” she said. Anyone with information can call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
