Hit and Run Driver Injures Bicyclist NR19137rc

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department's Central Traffic Division are asking for the public's help in providing any information that would lead to the identification and arrest of the suspect involved in a hit and run collision that injured a bicyclist.

On May 11, 2019, around 3:20 a.m., a bicyclist was travelling westbound through the intersection of 7th Street and Bonnie Brae Street when a light-colored SUV made a left turn from 7th Street and struck a bicyclist. The bicyclist landed on the windshield, rolled off and landed on the street.

The driver drove around the bicyclist, failed to stop, render aid or identify themselves as required by law.

The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and transported the bicyclist to a local hospital where he was treated for a broken leg.

On April 15, 2015, the City Council amended the Los Angeles Administrative Code and created a Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund. A reward of up to $25,000 is available to community members who provide information leading to the offender's identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.



Anyone with information is asked to contact the Central Traffic Division, Detective Juan Campos at (213) 833-3713 or Detective Moses Castillo (213) 486-0752. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) or go directly to www.lacrimestoppers.org.
