    Police investigate one of two fatal hit-and-run crashes that occurred within two hours on the San Fernando Valley's iconic Ventura Boulevard late Saturday and early Sunday, Aug. 17 and 18, 2013. On the same night, a woman was killed by a hit-and-run driver in South Los Angeles.

    Los Angeles city officials are expected this week to announce a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a driver who hit and killed a 35-year-old man in the San Fernando Valley.

    A driver in a white 2008-2010 Mercedes Benz CL class fatally hit Michael Bonanomi, of Santa Monica, on Aug. 17 on Ventura Boulevard just east of Fairway Avenue in Studio City.

    Bonanomi was hit as he walked north across Ventura Boulevard.

    The car, which took off east on Ventura, had black-paper license plates with yellow lettering.
