    Michael Anthony Love, 47, was killed Saturday in a hit-and-run while he was helping a woman who ran out of gas on the highway.

    Oak Farms Dairy is offering a $10,000 reward for information in the hit and run death of Good Samaritan Michael Anthony Love.

    Love pulled over at 1 a.m. on U.S. Highway 67 on April 20 to help a woman who, with six sleeping children and a cousin in the car, ran out of gas on the highway.

    Love took the time to assist Rishonda King, but before he could pour the gas into her car another driver swerved and hit him.

    King said Love threw her out of the way, saving her life before he was struck and killed.

    “He says, 'MOVE!' He grabs my arm and flung me to the back of my car,” said King. “He was an angel. My guardian angel."

    Love later died at the hospital. The driver who struck him left the scene of the crash.

    Police believe the vehicle may have been an older silver car with damage to the windshield and right mirror.

    Oak Farms will pay $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and grand jury indictment of the person who killed Love. The reward will be available for six months.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Dudley Marchetti with the Dallas Police Department at 214-671-0014.
