SOUTH LOS ANGELES, CA (July 28, 2022) – Saturday, Shakir Manners suffered injuries in a bicycle crash on Van Ness Avenue and West 67th Street.
 
The incident occurred on Van Ness Avenue and West 67th Street. As the muralist, Shakir Manners, rode his Super73 bike, a brown SUV hit him.
 
“As I’m kind of falling forward, the SUV rolls over my bike and my legs,” said Manners. “I slam my head on the pavement, I get dragged a little bit. And as I’m getting dragged, I see pedestrians telling the car, ‘Yo, stop! You hit someone!'”
 
“Everyone helped me to the side of the road. And when I was on the side of the road, I looked at my leg more closely. I saw that my bone was kind of coming out of my actual leg,” he added.
 
Officers described the driver as a female who stopped to help Manners. However, she fled and never identified herself.
 
South Traffic Division detectives handle the crash investigation.
