The family of a man killed while crossing the street in Cathedral City over the weekend are asking for the public's help in identifying the vehicle that fled the scene.

Rafael Valdez Felix was struck and killed by a vehicle Saturday at approximately 8:18 in the area of Ramon Road and Whispering Palms Trail.

"I just want justice for him cause he did not deserve this," said Bladimiro Valdez, Felix's brother. "He (the driver) should've at least stopped, at least stop."

Surveillance video provided by Felix's family shows the suspect vehicle speeding off.

"It is so unfair, how people just kept running him over. How did you not stop and see a human being," said Daisy Becerra, a relative of Felix's.
