The family of a 68-year-old Air Force veteran is asking for the public's help in finding the person who hit and killed him the day before Christmas Eve.

A driver hit hit 68-year-old Jerry McAnally on Dec. 23, killing him instantly, and then drove away.

McAnally was trying to cross Garland Road at Peavy Road to catch a bus when the crash happened.

"We just want justice; justice is the main thing," said Joyce McAnally, the victim's sister. "Anyone who would do that is cold-hearted."

"We don't care about them being punished," brother Terry McAnally said. "We'd just like to know who it is and put a final closure to it."

Another driver found McAnally lying near a concrete median and called 911.

"He did not deserve to die like that -- no one does," Joyce McAnally said.

Police have very little information in the case because the driver left the scene and no witnesses have come forward.

"They could have been going a 100 miles an hour; we don't know that," Terry McAnally said. "They could have been drunk; we don't know."

Anyone with information is asked to call Dallas police at 214-670-5817 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-373-8477.
