LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A friend of the family of a 6-year-old girl who was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash on Halloween offered a $10,000 reward in the case.

Brazyl Ward and her family had just left a trick-or-treat at their church, when they crossed a street on their way home. Ward's father, Brandon, told FOX5 that the family noticed a car in the distance, and had stopped in the middle of the street to wait for the car, but the girl had run ahead.

"The issue is that the vehicle accelerated to about 60 miles an hour," said Brandon Ward. "I didn't see her get hit. I heard it."

Brandon Ward, a former Las Vegas Metro police officer, said he performed CPR on Brazyl until paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital, where she remained Monday evening.

A witness said the driver of the car that hit Brazyl never slowed down. He said the driver even turned around after the crash and drove back by the scene.

Amber Pyle, spokeswoman for the Ward family, said Monday that a friend of the family, who wants to remain anonymous, is putting up the money for the reward for the arrest and conviction of the driver.

Police described the driver as a Hispanic man in his mid-20s. They also described the sedan as a four-door gray or silver, mid-2000s vehicle. They said the vehicle fled into a residential area near Spring Valley Parkway and Peace Way. They urged any resident who has home surveillance video to turn it in to police.

Anyone with information about the crash was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
