James Findley Killed in Possible Street Racing Accident in Los Angeles

 
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 12, 2019) – Police are searching for a second vehicle that may have been involved in a high-speed crash that left a bicyclist dead in the Florence neighborhood of South Los Angeles Monday night.
 
The bicyclist, identified by the coroner’s office as 54-year-old James Findley, was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Authorities received a call about 10:25 p.m. from a witness who said two vehicles were speeding down South Broadway when one of them collided with a bicyclist that was crossing at West 82nd Street, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. George Hoopes said.
 
Investigators could not confirm if the vehicles were racing prior to the crash.
 
The driver who struck Findley, as well as several parked vehicles and a tree, remained at the scene and was being detained by police, Hoopes said. He was described as a 25 to 30-year-old Hispanic man.
 
Police are searching for the driver of the second vehicle, which fled the scene. No description of that driver or the missing vehicle was available.
 
Investigators are also looking for any surveillance video that may show the incident.


We’d like to take this time and express our condolences to the family and friends of James Findley.
