MILLCREEK, Utah, Nov. 24, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Unified Police say a $10,000 reward is being offered for information after¬†a fatal hit-and-run crash in Millcreek on Oct. 29.

The victim, Barbara Anne Dwyer, 66, was initially reported to be in critical condition, but passed away the same day.

“A $10,000 reward has been offered leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the hit-and-run,” said a Facebook post from Unified Police Department. “On Oct. 29. at 7 a.m. Barbara Dwyer was walking to work when she was hit and killed at Luck Lane and Highland Drive. The suspect fled the scene. We are seeking any information on this vehicle and driver. The vehicle in the photos is a newer model Toyota Rav4. If you have information please call UPD at 801-840-4000 and help this family gain some justice. Reward is being offered by an anonymous donor.”

A previous Facebook¬†post from UPD said the vehicle is believed to be a newer (2018–2021) model Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. There is likely damage to the front headlight or marker light.

Investigators also are attempting to identify two other vehicles in the area at the time.

“There were two vehicles who traveled through the intersection seconds after she was hit, we are also asking for these individuals to come forward,” the previous post said. “We believe the people in these vehicles also witnessed the accident.”

Anyone who was driving near the Home Depot and Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park at approximately 7 a.m. on that day and may have witnessed the accident is asked to call UPD and reference case 21-134792.
