BERKELEY -- A $15,000 reward is being offered by the city for information leading to the driver in a July 15 hit-and-run crash that killed 46-year-old John Patrick Miller.

Berkeley police discovered Miller's body at 5:10 a.m. on the University Avenue overpass near 6th Street and determined he had been hit by a car, Officer Jennifer Coats said. Miller was pronounced dead at the scene after firefighters were unable to revive him.

Police have not released a description of the suspect or their vehicle, and have few leads with which to solve the case, Coats said. Anyone with information about the fatal incident is asked to contact the Traffic Bureau at 510-981-5980, or to leave an anonymous tip by contacting Bay Area Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.

"Any information may be critical to solving this crime," Coats said.
