Family: man killed in hit-and-run was Holocaust survivor, 91

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Family members say a man killed in a hit-and-run crash at a Los Angeles intersection was a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor.

Police are searching for the driver of a light-colored pickup with a camper shell seen on video striking a pedestrian at a crosswalk in Valley Village Monday.

The man died at a hospital.

Family members identified him as Gennady Bolotsky. Granddaughter Adriana Bolotsky tells KCAL -TV he came to the US as a refugee during World War II to escape Nazi occupation in Europe.

Authorities are offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
