PACOIMA (CBS) — Authorities Tuesday plan to hold a news conference to announce a $50,000 reward in double hit-and-run crash that killed a 79-year-old woman back in March.

The victim, identified as Virginia Ramirez of Pacoima, was struck while crossing Glenoaks Boulevard and Mercer Street in an unmarked crosswalk.
