Three local athletic organizations are offering a reward to help catch a hit and run driver that crashed into a jogger.
The accident happened at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Police said the 21-year old jogger was on Ocean Drive and was not in a crosswalk when she tried to get from Swantner Park to Poenish Drive.
That's when a sport utility vehicle hit the woman.
She was rushed to the hospital with critical head injuries, and police said she is expected to survive.
The Corpus Christi Roadrunners, Pendgo Timing and the Corpus Christi Triathlon Club have come together and offered up $1,500 in reward money to help catch the driver.
"Regardless of who may have been at fault, and as a registered engineer I disagree with the assessment," said Freddy Ramirez of Pendgo Timing. "You don't hit someone and drive away. That is not even being a good human being. That is a cowardly behavior."
Police believe the vehicle is a late 1990s model GMC Suburban or a Chevy Tahoe, possibly tan in color. It will have some front-end damage and will be missing a passenger-side headlight.
