Bicyclist Killed in Possible Street Racing Accident in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 10, 2019) – A bicyclist died Thursday in a possible street racing accident in the 2100 block of South Alameda Street near Florence Avenue.
The deadly event happened around 8:55 p.m., according to LA Fire Department.
According to authorities, the bicyclist was crossing the street when a 32-year-old Honda driver, who was believed to be speeding northbound on Alameda Street, struck him.
Upon striking the bicyclist, the Honda continued north until it lost control at the railroad tracks. Subsequently, the Honda driver struck a utility pole at which point the bicyclist died.
Now investigators are looking into the possibility of whether street racing played a factor.
Authorities have confirmed that the speed in which the driver had been traveling was excessive. There were no further details concerning the cyclist’s identity, age or residence.
