Southwest Division: The Los Angeles Police Department's South Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public's assistance in providing information that will lead to the identification and arrest of a driver in a hit and run collision that injured a 42-year-old victim.

On Monday, June 16, 2019, around 10:00 a.m., a severe hit and run traffic collision occurred at Figueroa Street and 45th Street. A light (possible silver) Nissan Sentra was traveling southbound Figueroa Street when they made a left westbound turn onto 45th Street and collided with a bicyclist, traveling northbound on Figueroa Street. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and render aid, identify him/herself as required by law.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded and transported the victim, to a local hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should stop, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.

On April 15, 2015, the City Council amended the Los Angeles Administrative Code and created a Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund. A reward of up to $25,000 is available to community members who provide information leading to the offender's identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.

The driver of the car saw the bicyclist on the hood and windshield of their car and they STILL drove off like nothing happened. I wish the LAPD put as much effort into finding hit and run offenders as much as they do with homicide suspects.

This hit and run stuff is a SERIOUS epidemic in LA. Careless drivers out here act like they own the road.

Every time I see a CHP car parked on a block or a LAPD squad car parked on a block, drivers display safe and cautious driving because they're scared of the LAPD and CHP. But as soon as those squad cars are gone you see stuff like what happened in this case.
