Witnesses sought in Thursday evening hit-and-run on Vermont Ave

Witnesses are being in a hit-and-run collision that occurred around 6:45 to 7 pm Thursday on Vermont Ave near the Metro stop at LACC.

According to a report on the Midnight Ridazz forum, the driver of a PT Cruiser initially stayed at the scene after hitting a rider head-on while making a left turn; once the rider was transported by ambulance, she left before police arrived after giving a false name and number to some cyclists who stopped to help.

Hi everyone,
I am posting this for any help/advice on catching a hit and run driver that took out my buddy while he was riding home from work on Thursday, Sept. 30th between 6:45-7pm.

He was heading south on Vermont Avenue and right before LACC next to the Metro stop, a girl (18-20yrs) driving a PT Cruiser turned left quickly trying to beat oncoming traffic and hit him head on.

A couple of cyclists helped him out and blocked the girl from driving off. He’s pretty sure they called 911 but was too out of it to get anyone’s contact info. The ambulance took him to the hospital and by the time the police arrived the driver had left. It appears she gave a false name and number to the cyclist who were helping.

If you were one of the cyclists who made a 911 call or have advice on who to contact to help follow up on leads it would be greatly appreciated.
