The father of a Hudson Valley man who died in a hit-and-run crash on I-84 has raised the reward being offered to $10,000 to help find the vehicle that hit his son.

Daniel "Danny" Crawford Jr., 32, was found around 1 a.m. Saturday , on April 7,  after a Connecticut State Police received a 911 car reporting a body in the road near Exit 2 in Danbury.

Once on scene, police located a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee on the right shoulder and Crawford's body, who died of an apparent fatal injury, according to state police.

Police said they believe a tractor-trailer may have hit Crawford without knowing it had hit anyone.

The family originally offered a $5,000 reward shortly after the crash. At that time, his father, Daniel Crawford Sr., told Daily Voice: "It's a terrible way to lose someone. Maybe the money will help someone come forward."

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Connecticut State Police in Southbury at 203-267-2200.
