The Los Angeles Police Department wants the public’s help to find the driver of a car that hit and ran over a 23-year-old bicyclist in South Los Angeles last month. The bicyclist died.
A news report from the LAPD says that the crash happened on April 13 at around 10:40 p.m. at the corner of Main and 43rd streets.
Surveillance video shows the 23-year-old man, whose name is Inmer Samuel Cruz, riding his bike west across Main Street on 43rd Street when he is hit by a silver car going south on Mainstreet.
The driver didn’t stop to identify themselves or try to help the bicyclist. Instead, they drove south on Main Street, away from the scene.
Police say that the car that hit someone and then drove away is a silver 2008–2013 Mercedes Benz C230 or C330.
A $50,000 reward is being given for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person who hit and ran.
Anyone who knows anything about what happened is asked to call Officer Balderas or Detective Campos at the LAPD Central Traffic Division at 213-833-3713. Call 800-222-8477 or go to CrimeStoppers.com to give information anonymously.
