Police say darkness, rain and obstructed view may have prevented the striking vehicle from seeing Weintraub walking with his cane in the crosswalk as it passed another car on its right, but here's possible no excuse for not stopping.
The striking vehicle is described as dark blue or black 4-door sedan with a missing right front passenger hubcap and windshield/front end damage.
