EVERY day as Mohammad Rahimi nears his Guildford home, he passes the spot where his Mum, Javaher, was fatally injured by a car which drove on without stopping.
The 66-year-old grandmother was struck at the intersection between Hawksview and Cecil streets on a nightly walk at 8.50pm on Sunday, December 18. She died a short time later at Westmead Hospital.
An emotional Mr Rahimi described her as "the best mum ever", and said that she was always happy.
Pleading with the driver to imagine how they would feel if it was their mother who had been killed, he urged them to come forward.
"The accident happened right next to the house," he said. "I will never forget that night. I tried to ring her phone. The phone didn't answer. But the second time when I rang, the police answered the phone from Merrylands police station and they say 'your Mum has passed away'."
Renewing their call for witnesses, police originally said the car involved was a Ford Falcon but are now confident it was a yellow Mitsubishi, which would have sustained damaged on the driver's side.
Detective inspector Katie Orr from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit urged the driver to come forward before investigators knock on their door and she said police have already spoken to one witness to the collision.
"Its a callous act," she said.
"That person would know that they've hit Mrs Rahimi and they've failed to come forward."
