Albany -- A $5000 reward is offered in a hit and run death. An organization called "Friends of the Family" raised the money. It will be paid to the person who gives information that leads to the arrest of the hit and run driver who killed an Albany woman.

57-year old Ginny Crisler was run down in the Hunters Mill shopping center as she was Christmas shopping late Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses say the car was a white late 80-s or early 90-s model Chevrolet Lumina with gold or silver stripes on the side and dark tinted windows.

Police have received dozens of tips, but so far no arrests. Albany Police Sgt. Tony Moore said "The public itself is just as much on the lookout for this vehicle as the Police Department is. Our goal today is just to put some incentive out there to bring this individual to justice."

If you have any information, call Albany Police at 431-3279.

The people who gave the reward money want to stay anonymous, but they ask for your help to find the driver who killed Ginny Crisler.
