DALLAS (KRLD) - Garland police need the public's help to find a man responsible for a deadly hit and run accident.

Police were called to the intersection of Jupiter Road and Forest Lane and found a woman unconscious inside a Toyota 4Runner, which had been struck by a truck on the driver's side.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she later died. She has been identified as 46-year-old Joyce Cawis, of Rowlett.

Police say a four-door Ram Big Horn had been speeding through the intersection when it slammed into the 4Runner.

Witnesses told them that the driver of the truck got out and then got into a black 4 door car and took off.

The driver is described as a Hispanic man with a short fade haircut, wearing a black, soccer-style jersey with white lettering on the front and back, with black shorts and leggings.

A $5,000 reward is being offered in the case.
