A good friend of Larry Flynt’s – and a longtime employee of Hustler – was killed in a hit-and-run accident Monday morning. Flynt is offering $10,000 to anyone who can help track down the killer.
A rep for Hustler tells TMZ, the victim, a man named Larry Hughes, was crossing the street in L.A. when a white Ford Mustang ran him over, and then sped away from the scene. Hughes was rushed to a nearby hospital where he later died from his injuries.
The rep told TMZ, “It is unconscionable that a human being could strike a man down and simply drive away. We are committed to helping to find the person responsible and seeing that he or she is brought to justice.”
In addition to offering a reward, Flynt is urging anyone with any information to contact the LAPD stat.
