Dare County Crime Line has announced that the reward for information leading to the apprehension of Luis Alberto Rodriguez has been raised to $2,000.
Rodriguez was charged with three felonies and DUI after a crash at a malfunctioning traffic light killed a visitor from Lenoir on Oct. 5, 2011.
His Chevy Lumina collided with a pickup driven by Paul Davis at the intersection of Colington Road and U.S. 158 in Kill Devil Hills. Police say Rodriguez ran through a flashing red light.
The pickup flipped, killing passenger Joseph Storie, 51. Two other passengers in the truck — Storie’s wife and sister — were hurt. Rodriguez was also injured and was taken to a Norfolk hospital.
An extra reward of $1,000 has been offered by the Storie family.
