The bicyclist sustained severe injuries and was pronounced at scene.

The identity of the bicyclist is unknown at this time and pending identification by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

The suspect vehicle failed to stop and render aid /exchange information and was last seen fleeing east bound on Nordhoff Street.  Witnesses described the vehicle as a dark colored, possible dark blue, mid-size SUV, Chevrolet Blazer or similar type of vehicle.
