Los Angeles police on Friday will announce a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a hit-and-run driver whose car struck and killed a woman in November in downtown L.A.’s Fashion District.

Jacqueline Hernandez, 24, was crossing 12th Street near Paloma Street around 6 p.m. Nov. 7 when she was killed. Her 5-year-old daughter was severely injured, police said.

Witnesses weren’t able to obtain the car’s license plate number, but surveillance cameras from a nearby business captured footage of the collision and the vehicle.
