    A Chicago family is offering a reward for any information that could help police find the driver that hit and killed a 54-year-old man on the West Side three months ago.

    "We would like to have closure with our family and we would like for this person to pay for what he or she has done," said Mildred.

    The family of Daryl Lincoln is putting up a $1,000 reward for any new tips that could help investigators make an arrest in the case.

    On January 9th Lincoln,  a Catholic Charities employee, left work and was crossing the street at Jackson Boulevard and Francisco Avenue  when a dark colored minivan hit him.  A security video shows the driver of the minivan never stopped.  Lincoln died from his injuries at Rush Hospital ten days later.

    Saturday Lincoln's mother Mildred and his son Brian stood on at corner of where the accident occurred to pass out fliers in hopes that someone will come forward with new information.

    "Our family has been hit with a devastating loss," said Lincoln's son Brian.  "We really would like to move on."

    Tips can be reported at 1-800-TELL-US, OR 1-800-883-5587.
