(WJLA) - Authorities in Anne Arundel County are stepping up their search for the driver of a car that hit two kids last April, killing one.

Two young children - a boy and a girl - were hit by a Ford Expedition last April 13 on Mountain Road near Alvin Drive in Lake Shore, officials say. Both of the children suffered serious injuries in the crash, and the boy died after being taken to a Baltimore shock trauma center.

Anne Arundel County Police say that the car, likely from the 1997-2002 model years, fled the scene. Authorities assume the vehicle suffered damage to the passenger side lights, hood and front quarter panel.

Police and the victim's friends and family have combined to offer a $15,000 reward for information leading to the car or the driver.
