AUSTIN -- The husband of a woman killed by a hit-and-run driver more than four-and-a-half years ago, still hopes the driver will come forward.

Jack O'Bryan was at the crash site Friday morning on Steck Avenue in Northwest Austin, to replace a cross where his wife was killed.

He was accompanied by two other men, including Bart Griffin, the father of hit-and-run victim Courtney Griffin.

The third man was a friend who was also affected by a hit-and-run accident.

"It's an accident nobody intends. If unfortunately you do hit somebody, stop because it's that pivotal moment to where you decide to leave the scene and another fellow human being and their families are gonna suffer," Robert Lim said.

Linda O'Bryan, 58, died in July 2008 as she was walking home from work at night. Police believe a blue Chevy or GMC pickup may have hit her.

On Monday, Bart Griffin will learn the sentence for Gabrielle Nestande, the woman who killed his daughter in May 2011.
