DALLAS (KRLD) - A Dallas man was hit by a driver who left him to die, and now his family wants answers.

NBC 5 reports Gerardo Alvarez was crossing Esperanza Road on October 23 sometime before midnight, when police say a dark 2006-2009 Ford SUV hit him and was last seen turning westbound onto Kit Lane.

It would now have damage to the front left headlight.

"What hurts us the most is the vehicle didn't stop to check in on him," Alvarez's daughter Catherine said. "We don't know if my father could've still been with us if someone was able to send out first aid."

Alvarez was just two months shy of turning 60.

In addition to his kids, he left behind a wife, siblings, friends, and a grandchild.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information about the case.
