The Los Angeles City Council is continuing to offer a $50,000 reward to anyone who has information on a hit and run accident that claimed the life of video game casting director Brigitte Burdine in Playa del Rey last year.
Burdine, 48, of Venice was struck by a vehicle headed eastbound on Culver Boulevard near Nicholson Lane at approximately 1:45 a.m. Dec. 29. She later died at a local hospital.
Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who represents Playa del Rey, authored the renewal of the reward.
“I move that the City Council reaffirm its findings for the reward offer relative to the death of Brigitte Burdine and that the reward offer be reinstated for an additional period of six months from the publication of the renewed offer of reward by the city clerk and, further, that the sum of $50,000 shall be the aggregate maximum sum of any payment or payments of a city reward in this instance,” the motion reads.
Rosendahl first submitted the reward proposal, which was unanimously approved by the council, Jan 12.
Burdine’s death has revived discussions on traffic speed and safety on Culver. Some residents are seeking traffic measures to slow down vehicle speed on one of Playa del Rey’s main thoroughfares, which is designated as a secondary highway.
