WASHINGTON, DC — The Metropolitan Police Department has released new surveillance video related to a fatal hit-and-run that happened on August 19.
The new video was taken from 21st St, NW & K St, NW, about two blocks away from the crash itself.
The crash left David Narvaez, 29, of Arlington, VA dead.
The MPD said around 2:40 a.m., Narvaez was crossing the street in the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue, NW and M Street, NW when he was hit by a car heading south on New Hampshire Avenue, NW. The driver of the car did not stop.
Police are looking for a 2004-2008 Toyota Corolla S model. The vehicle has a light colored, possibly yellow, rear license tag, and the vehicle has damage to the drivers’ side hood, fender, and windshield. The right front passenger is described as having a light complexion.
Friends DCW News at 10 spoke with said Narvaez had just finished a shift a Lucky Bar a few blocks away. They described him as really nice person on the cusp of doing more things with his life.
"Our family, as are so many others, is suffering deeply from the loss of David. We are proud of how much he accomplished in his life, while putting other people first. We are thankful for every day we got to spend with him and that he had the chance to meet his new niece and recently be in his sister’s wedding. We are so appreciative of the outpouring of love for him from his friends and the larger community," said Narvaez's family said in a statement.
Narvaez's funeral is Saturday in Northfield, MN. His family is asking in lieu of flowers, people donate to the Rice County Habitat for Humanity, a charity that Narvaez had volunteered with. The family will also be attending a memorial for Narvaez on September 10 at Lucky Bar. It will also raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
Narvaez's family also had a message for the driver of the car.
