TEANECK, N.J. -- A GoFundMe reward grew Thursday to nearly $3,000 for information that helps find whoever was responsible for the hit-and-run death of 28-year-old Teaneck man as he crossed Route 46 near the Teterboro Walmart last month.
"Brian Rossi was a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend who was taken away from us all too soon," his sister, Sharyn Rossi Agnew, wrote on the GoFundMe page she launched earlier this week.
"The culprit(s) left the scene and left Brian to die on the side of the road, alone," after the 5:50 a.m. Jan. 5 crash near Industrial Avenue. "They have not come forward despite pleas from police detectives and family members for information."
Authorities two weeks ago released a surveillance photo of a a black Ford Focus , sedan or hatchback, model year range 2012 to 2015 (above photo, left) , that they said struck and killed Brian.
In the photo was Mitsubishi Lancer (above photo, right) that they said picked up the driver.
The Focus "will have significant front end damage, including a broken passenger side headlight, and a broken passenger side-view mirror," Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.
"The driver fled the scene traveling eastbound on Route 46 before parking in the rear of a business," Calo said.
The Lancer "arrived shortly thereafter and both vehicles left together," he said. "They traveled east on Route 46, then north on Liberty Street towards Hackensack.
"Both vehicles were also seen traveling southbound on Terrace Avenue in the area of Route 17, headed towards Hasbrouck Heights."
Anyone with information that could help find the vehicles and/or their drivers is asked to contact the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit at (201) 226-5698 or the Moonachie Police Department at (201) 641-9100 .
All calls will remain confidential, authorities said.
