April 23, 2021

Los Angeles: Detectives from the
Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division are
seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect
responsible for the Hit and Run traffic collision that severely
injured a bicyclist.

On March 9, 2021, around 6:04 p.m., a 30-year male bicyclist was
riding on the north sidewalk of Olympic Boulevard, just east of
Boyle Avenue, when he was struck by the driver of a white
semi-truck as the driver was entering a commercial fueling station.
The driver stopped briefly but left the scene without identifying
himself or rendering aid to the bicyclist.

The bicyclist suffered multiple fractures and internal injuries. He
was taken to a local hospital by paramedics from the Los Angeles
City Fire Department. After several days in the intensive care
unit, he was later released and is slowly recovering.

The semi-truck is a white, possible 2015 Freightliner Columbia 120.
The driver is described as a male, possible Hispanic, in his late
30’s.

Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision,
they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so,
notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify
themselves.
