Jason Swanson was hit by a car on 56th Avenue near Washington Street in Hollywood Sunday about 8:15 PM.

Swanson’s motorcycle exploded and his body caught on fire in the middle of the road.

“We need closure to this situation. This is my son, a 30-year-old son that burned on this driveway. If you have any information please come forward,” said Greg Swanson.

Witnesses said they saw the driver, a woman, get out of the car and approach the body. They also said she had an 8 to 12-year-old daughter in the car.

“I just want to find who did this. She has a child, too. I can’t imagine someone doing that. As a mother I can’t even imagine, what is she telling that child, it’s OK?” said Amber Hall, a friend of the victim.

Victor Carvajal said he looked out the window when heard the impact.

“I saw fire and immediately I was like what’s going on?” he said.

“As a parent, if you have kids, if not for my son, for the daughter of the person who hit my son, who stood by his burning body right there in this driveway, how can you not come forward and not tell us what you saw that night,” said Greg Swanson.

Investigators said surveillance video captured a dark, late 90s to early 2000 Ford Explorer or Sport Trac. The truck, investigators believe, will have damage to the passenger side running board.

Swanson’s mother is making an appeal directly to the person who hit and killed her son.

“If you’re watching this newscast, you have a daughter, you see this, I’m sure you must have panicked when you saw this. Please turn yourself in,” said Laura Cardinale.

Neighbors in the area, like Mary Johnson, are passing out flyers, hoping to help the family gain closure.
