38-Year-Old Motorcyclist Injured in Hit and Run Collision NR11045gb

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) South Traffic Detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a driver who struck a male motorcyclist as he rode his motorcycle in South Los Angeles.

On Monday, January 14, 2011, at about 10:10 p.m., the 38-year-old motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on Martin Luther King Boulevard when he was struck by a dark color Honda or Toyota, 4-door passenger car.  The suspect’s vehicle was traveling westbound on Martin Luther King Boulevard, and fled onto southbound Normandie Avenue after the collision.

The driver of the Honda/Toyota was a male Hispanic with black hair and brown eyes.  He stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 250 pounds. The driver left the scene without rendering aid or identifying himself as required by law.

The motorcyclist sustained moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital.  He was treated and released.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured the images of the driver and the passenger, but the image of the driver is unidentifiable.  Detectives want to talk to the passenger for questioning only in connection with this hit and run incident.

Anyone with information about this incident or whereabouts of this driver/passenger is urged to contact South Traffic Division Detective Sandra Smith at 323-290-6067 or 213-485-7336.   During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
