A $10,000 reward was offered Tuesday for the arrest and indictment of a hit-and-run motorist who killed a college student walking across an intersection Jan. 16.

Oak Farms Dairy made the offer in hope of helping investigators identify the driver who killed Kelly Walters, 20, as she tried to cross Northeast Green Oaks Boulevard at Burney Road that night.

Investigators have received about 50 tips but have yet to find the motorist, who drove away after hitting and killing Walters, a student at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Detectives have released video surveillance of the suspect vehicle shortly after the fatal crash, saying the car was a dark gray 2007 to 2010 Chrysler 300.

The car ran a red light, police said. However, the video shows that a white vehicle stopped at the intersection.

Anyone with information should call Arlington police at 817-459-5786 or Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
