SUV hits and bicyclist and flees the scene

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.
