Ty Pennington to the Rescue!


It’s always nice to see celebrities using their fame for a good purpose, especially when it’s just to help the little guy and not as another excuse to walk a red carpet.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘s main man has offered up a $10,000 reward for anyone with information about a hit-and-run accident that left the cousin of his comanager, Bill Stankey, on life support.

Per a statement released by Pennington’s rep, 33-year-old Daniel Seeck, a Los Angeles-based attorney, was struck by a vehicle Jan. 17 while riding his bike in Santa Monica. He is now on life support at UCLA Medical Center.

A red SUV was seen in the area immediately following the crash, according to the statement. Tipsters are being asked to contact Santa Monica Police Investigator Chris Dawson at 310-458-8427 or WE TIP at 1-800-782-7463.

If you know anything about this accident, please call!

And, look, for what it’s worth, if you ever accidentally hit someone with your motor vehicle, I know the first instinct may be to panic and get out of there, but you’re always better staying. My old roommate had a good friend who had accidentally hit a police car while driving. The policeman died, and her friend fled the scene. They tracked him down the next day, and, at the age of 18, put him in jail for the rest of his life. Mostly, he was in trouble for fleeing the scene after accidentally killing a cop. Everyone said the punishment would have been less severe if he’d stayed and tried to help, but he panicked and ran. The whole thing was so devastating. He used to send her pages and pages of letters from prison. It broke my heart. Don’t let this happen to you!!!

  • Aren’t we going to make fun of the fact that he’s orange? Because he is. Orange. At least his spray tan doesn’t sink into his neck wrinkles like it does to the ladies I work with but still. You do see that he’s orange. It’s not just me, right?

  • I have a friend here in Texas that is a lobbyist. He worked to create a bill that makes it a felony with a minimum sentence of 10 years in the case of a hit and run where the victim is left with serious injuries or death. It used to be five years for failure to stop and render aid.

    This was a great law in my opinion. I can’t imagine what goes through one’s head when they hit someone, but I just don’t know where the instinct to run comes from. When I hit a CAT I go back, how do you not do so with a human??

  • dude’s a lawyer? couldn’t he put even more money up?


    well, if they find that person, they are SO SUUUUUED.

  • I am sorry, if you hit someone with your car the first instinct it NOT to panic and run. Only selfish psychotic bastards do that.
