Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the driver responsible for a Vietnam War veteran's death in Barrio Logan last month.
Felipe Nieto, 77, was hit by a car while crossing the intersection of Logan Avenue and Sampson Street the evening of Jan. 2. He was hospitalized with a brain injury and died 10 days later.
On Thursday, Crime Stoppers released a photo of the driver taken after the collision. The driver got out of his car to check on Nieto and drove away. Police say the driver stopped no longer than 30 seconds.

"Why he didn't stay is beyond me. I would never think to leave a human being laying on the street like that," Nieto's daughter Felicia Nieto said.
Crime Stoppers also released a snapshot of the driver's license plate: temporary plate U511847 out of Arizona. The driver's car was a gray 2015 Chevy Malibu.
Since her father's death, Leticia said she's been doing her best to cope.
"It's very tragic and sad. A lot of sleepless nights. It's been horrible for myself and my family," Leticia Nieto said.
Leticia Nieto told NBC 7 in January her father made a stop at the grocery store after leaving the VFW post in Barrio Logan, but never made it home.
"He did a lot of great things for his family, for this country, and for his community," Leticia Nieto said days after her father's death. She has been pleading with the police and community for help in finding the driver.
Felipe Nieto served his country in the Vietnam War -- three tours, in fact -- and was a father of five, and a grandfather.
"We want justice and we want answers, too," Leticia Nieto said.
