The family of a Pacoima man murdered on the 210 Freeway in an apparent road rage incident earlier this year joined city leaders and police Thursday to announce a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
Sergio Sanchez, 35, was found shot in the driver's seat of his black Mitsubishi Eclipse around 1 a.m. March 14 on the Roxford Street off-ramp by a sheriff’s deputy who received a call of a traffic obstruction.
Sanchez was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead.
"Sergio didn't deserve this. His life was not yours to take," cousin Norma Mora said in Mission Hills Tuesday.

"We are asking anyone who was on the westbound 210 Freeway that night abound 1 a.m. to search their memories and let us know even the smallest bit of information," said Lt. Paul Vernon.

Sanchez had no criminal history and no gang affiliation. At the time of the killing, police were investigating a possible link between the slaying and reports of shots fired in a neighborhood earlier in the evening.
