Reward offered for help finding hit and run driver in deadly Clinton Township crash

Clinton Township (WXYZ) - On the day after Thanksgiving, someone hit a 20-year-old woman walking home from work in Clinton Township.

Today, her family and Crime Stoppers are hoping a reward will help bring the hit and run driver to justice.

Bobbi Roberts was on Gratiot near Capital when a driver heading north hit her.  

The 20-year-old survived for a time, but died at the hospital. The driver that left her suffering on the side of the road never stopped.  

“Bobby is gone. Nothing will bring her back, but she deserves justice,” said her mom Carolin Roberts.

Surveillance video shows that there was a witness. A driver swerves around Bobbi right after she was hit.  That driver also never stopped.  Police would like to talk to that driver in hopes of help finding the person who hit her.

“There is someone out there who knows what happened,” said Nancy Williams, Bobbi’s aunt. “There were two cars. One that hit her.  One that went around her.”

Family members are trying to focus on memories of the motivated young woman who made them smile. Bobbi was an honor student, volunteer, and a college student with the goal of serving in the military.

“She always said she was here for greater things,” said her sister Shauna Roberts.

The reward being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction is $2500. All calls are anonymous.  The number to call if you have information that can help is 1-800-Speak-Up.
