Holocaust survivor killed in hit-and-run; witness walking by did not stop to help

LOS ANGELES -- Police are offering a $50,000 reward for information in a hit-and-run crash that killed a grandfather in Valley Village earlier this week.

Gennady Bolotsky died after being run over around 5:35 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Magnolia Boulevard and Wilkinson Avenue.

Bolotsky's granddaughter told KTLA he was a Holocaust survivor who had just celebrated his 91st birthday earlier this month.

The driver was heading east on Magnolia when he or she crashed into Bolotsky, who was walking north on Wilkinson inside a marked crosswalk, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The motorist then drove away without rendering aid.

Graphic surveillance video provided by Bolotsky's family shows a pickup plow into the elderly man in the crosswalk. The truck then pauses momentarily before proceeding to drive over Bolotsky's body as it flees the scene.

Another man crossing the street simultaneously at Magnolia witnessed the entire thing but also failed to stop and render aid, the footage shows.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported Bolotsky to a hospital where he later died, police said.

The vehicle involved was described as a white pickup truck with a white cam
