BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — More money is being offered to anyone who helps identify the driver of a car that hit and killed a woman near CSUB back in July.

It has been more than 6 months since the hit-and-run crash that killed 65-year-old Deborah Ann Geneau. Bakersfield police have finished the investigation and filed the report in the deadly crash.

The family of Geneau and a Bakersfield law firm chain, Cohn Stiles, is increasing the reward to $7,500.

The driver was in a 2013 to 2019 dark gray Nissan Sentra that is suspected of causing the crash on Stockdale near Don Hart Drive.

Anyone with information is asked to call 326-3967 or the secret witness hotline at 322-4040.
