LOS ANGELES — Hustler founder Larry Flynt is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can help track down the killer of a longtime Hustler employee.

TMZ reported that Hustler’s Larry Hughes was killed in a hit-and-run accident Monday morning.

A Hustler spokesperson told TMZ Hughes was crossing the street in L.A. when a white Ford Mustang ran him over and left the scene.

Hughes was rushed to a nearby hospital and later died from his injuries.

"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,” the spokesperson said.

Flynt is also urging anyone with information to contact the LAPD.
