1 Dead in Los Angeles Bicycle Accident on Orange Drive
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 4, 2019) – A person died in a car and bicycle accident on Orange Drive on October 25.
Authorities are looking for information regarding the crash to arrest and convict the driver who hit the bicyclist.
A woman in her 40s rode her bicycle north on Orange Drive just north of Hollywood Boulevard at approximately 2:20 a.m. However, a northbound vehicle hit her from behind and fled the scene. When the paramedics arrived, they pronounced the woman dead at the scene.
Det. Connie White, of the LAPD’s West Traffic Division, clarified that the woman died while “doing nothing wrong.” Authorities suspect that the victim is homeless and authorities are trying to reach and notify her family before releasing her identity.
“It’s very unfortunate,” White stated. “We are asking for the public’s help.”
A security camera footage revealed that a four-door, silver sedan hit the victim. Authorities are now urging anyone with information to contact the police. The tipster who provided information that will lead to an arrest and conviction in hit-and-run cases may receive a standing reward of up to $50,000 from Los Angeles City Council. Tipsters can contact West Traffic Division at (213)473-0234. During weekends and off-hours, call (877) LAPD247.
Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family and friends of the victim.
