LAS VEGAS -- A family in mourning is speaking out in hopes a hit-and-run driver who left a grandfather dead will come forward.
Police say the suspect is a young woman who hit a 63-year-old man who was out walking his 18-month-old granddaughter. After the crash, witnesses say, the driver just took off.
The family says they have lost a man they called a wonderful grandfather, a loving dad, and also a veteran.
Michael Grubbs lost his life near Warm Springs Road and Rainbow Boulevard doing something he truly enjoyed which was spending time with his young granddaughter.
Now he's gone and his family is left asking why.
"He wasn't my father, but he was like a father," said Joey Trinidad.
He wants answers in the hit-and-run crash that took his father-in-law's life and left his 1-year-old daughter Brooke injured.
