DALLAS -- Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle that hit a man attempting to help a motorist who had run out of gas on April 20.

At 2:08 a.m. on April 20, Michael Anthony Love was going to help the stranded driver on the northbound side of the 5700 block of Marvin D. Love Freeway, just south of Hampton Road, when he was hit by a sedan.

The driver fled and Love was later pronounced dead at Methodist Central Hospital.

Debris left at the scene indicates the suspect's vehicle is a 1992-94 gray or silver Mercury Grand Marquis four-door sedan. According to a DPD press release, the vehicle will have a large hole in its windshield, will be missing the passenger-side mirror, an amber corner light lens, and chrome trim.

Additionally, the suspect may have cuts on their face and hands from the glass.

Oak Farms Dairy has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective D.T. Marchetti of the DPD Vehicle Crimes Unit at (214) 671-0014 or Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477, if they wish to remain anonymous.
