ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) - The reward for information about a deadly accident on I-65 is growing. George Bolden died in April of last year when another vehicle rear-ended his. Bolden's SUV veered off the roadway and flipped several times before crashing into a tree. Authorities hope someone will come forward and help them solve the case.

Authorities who worked the wreck on the night of April 7th last year say George Bolden never stood a chance. When his SUV was rear-ended by another vehicle on I-65 near Ardmore, Bolden apparently lost control of his car. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The vehicle that caused the wreck didn't stop. At least one witness tried to catch up with the vehicle, described as a white Ford F-150 pick-up truck with a 4-wheeler in the bed, but it sped away.

Family members reached by telephone today say they just want justice for Bolden. They've had several gatherings on his behalf, the family wears t-shirts and even wrist bands that bear his image, and his name.

Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones increased the reward for information regarding the wreck and the suspect vehicle and driver this week. Jones told WHNT News 19, "We want to keep this investigation in the public eye." He says, "We owe that family closure, and we owe George Bolden justice."

No arrests were ever made in the case, and the investigation remains open.

The reward for information that might solve this case has been increased to $12,500. If you have any information, you're urged to contact Alabama State Troopers.
