CCPD asks Culver City witnesses to come forward; LA bike community to hold major press event Thursday

Culver City police are asking for anyone who may have witnessed the collision earlier this month in which an alleged drunk, speeding and distracted driver collided with a group of late night riders on Jefferson Blvd.

Anyone with information is urged to come in to police headquarters to review a photo reconstruction of the event. If you were there, or know people who were, contact CCPD Officers Davis or Newman at 310-253-6254. Thanks to Jim Shanman of the Culver City Bicycle Coalition for the heads-up.

And clear your schedule for tomorrow morning, when a wide spectrum of the Los Angeles cycling community representing cyclists of all types — myself included — will come together for a press event to protest the botched LAPD investigation and biased press coverage of this case, and make a public call for safer streets and fair investigation into all cycling incidents.

    Thanks for posting the information about tomorrow’s press conference. That’s a big deal.

  3. What ever happened with this? Has Dahab been charged? Will this one slip through the cracks like every other case of car vs bike in LA?

      The case is still under investigation. So far, the CCPD is remaining tight lipped about it, but my understanding is that it is being taken seriously and that they are not relying on the LAPD’s flawed initial findings.
