Authorities are offering a $2,500 reward as they continue searching for the motorist who struck and killed a volunteer firefighter outside a Somerville firehouse.
The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office says 75-year-old George Kavanaugh was hit and run over by a light-colored vehicle that backed out of the Lincoln Hose Company parking lot on Friday night. He died at a hospital.
Authorities say a witness said the vehicle had been idling and parked in the area of the front bay firehouse door between 9:15 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Kavanaugh had been a volunteer member of the department for 50 years.
