SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Police have no leads in the investigation of a hit-and-run driver who killed a Vietnam War veteran last month, but his family is now giving away a classic muscle car for information leading to the suspect’s capture.

Jonni Carkhum’s father Sgt. Collis Carkhum survived the Vietnam War and a bad car accident that broke his back, only to be killed by a hit and run driver on his walk home from a friend’s house, last month.

“And nobody knows who hit him. We don’t have any leads other than a piece of a car. Other than that, that’s the most I know,” Jonni said.
