The multi-talented Ty Pennington has just added ‘fighting for justice’ to his list of skills.

The celebrity carpenter and host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a hit-and-run driver.

Daniel Seeck, an attourney who is a cousin of Ty’s co-manager Bill Stankey, was riding his bicycle on Jan 17 sometime between 12.10am and 12.25am when he was hit by a vehicle at the corner of Arizona and 20th streets in Santa Monica.

A red SUV was seen in the area immediately after the crash, according to a statement from Ty’s rep, released today.

Seeck is now on life support at UCLA Medical Center, and Ty has put up the cash to help catch the driver.

Ty says he wants anyone with info to call SMPD Investigator Chris Dawson at 310-458-8427 or WE TIP at 1-800-782-7463.

Perhaps Ty sees this as a way to make up for his own driving transgressions.


He was convicted for a DUI after he was pulled over in LA in 2007.

“This was my wake-up call,” Pennington said at the time.
