Hit and run driver sought with £1,000 reward
A REWARD of £1,000 is being offered to find a suspected hit and run driver, following the death of a 22-year old man.
Marc Williams, from Bourne End, died following a crash in Cox Green, Berkshire last December.
The charity Crimestoppers is now offering the four figure sum to help track the motorist in question.
The family of the Marlow Rugby Club member pleaded for information to help the police investigation with an emotional internet video appeal in February.
Mr Williams was found lying in the southbound entry slip of the A404M at Cox Green by members of the public in the early hours of Saturday 1 December. Mr Williams died from his injuries en route to Wexham Park Hospital.
It is believed the crash occurred between about 2.15am and 2.30am and the vehicle did not stop at the scene.
The money is being put forward for anyone with information leading to the arrest and charge of the person involved in the collision.
Investigating officer Sgt Beth Walton, of the Roads Policing Department, said: "Marc’s parents have been left devastated by his death and are desperately longing for answers.
They are unable to find any peace of mind until they know how and why their son died."
Distraught mum Joanne Parker previously told how the tragedy had "ripped my heart out", while dad Mark Williams said he struggled to sleep through not knowing what had caused his death.
Nine months into the investigation police have been unable to identify the vehicle and driver involved, she said.
She said: "There was a good response from the public around the time of the collision and all witnesses who came forward at that time have been spoken to.
"We believe that someone will know the person who was involved in this, either having been present in the vehicle as a passenger at the time, or having gained such knowledge following the collision.
"We need further support from the public and are appealing for those with this knowledge to come forward and speak to us.
"I would like to thank Crimestoppers for putting forward this reward and urge anyone with information to come forward." Anyone with information can contact Sgt Walton or PC Julia Stroud on the 24-hour police non-emergency number 101.
Or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or go online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
