INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Indianapolis Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay, as well as punter Pat McAfee, announced Monday they would add to the reward being offered for information leading to an arrest in a deadly Boone County hit-and-run.

Irsay has pledged an additional $10,000 and McAfee has added $5,000, bringing the reward total to $26,000.
