BOLO Alert: LAPD looking for hit-and-run driver who seriously injured cyclist in West L.A.

I just received an email from LAPD Sgt. David Krumer asking cyclists to be on the lookout for a speeding hit-and-run and run driver, who fled the scene of a serious collision last month, and left a cyclist with life-altering injuries.

The victim of a hit and run (car vs bicycle) on December 13, 2011 (case #110 718 955) as riding southbound on Curson crossing Pico with a fully green light. He was hit by a car traveling westbound on Pico at 40 to 50 miles an hour. He was thrown across the intersection and suffered broken bones in the hand and wrist as well as a fractured tibia and a torn PCL in the knee. The driver never braked or turned away. The injuries sustained are life changing and have confined the victim to a wheelchair for at least a few more months.

SUSPECT VEHICLE: 2007 Mercedes CL 550, 2Dr, CP, dark gray, California Lic Plate 6EGY041

SUSPECT: Male Black, Short Black Hair, late 20’s

Anyone having information about the driver of suspect vehicle, or was a witness to the accident is asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department West Traffic Division, Investigator Fischer at:

4849 W. Venice Blvd. LA 90019, Phone number (213) 473-0229 or

Let’s keep our eyes open and catch this son of a bitch before he kills someone.

    If they have the plate number, don’t they have an address of registration and an owner? It seems like they have a lot of info- description of driver, plate #- don’t understand why it’s so hard to find the guy.

      According to the LAPD, the registered owner of that car has not lived at the address listed for a number of years. Personally, I think it would be more effective to release the name of the suspect so we could look for him rather than the car, but I imagine they have their reasons for not doing that.

  3. Google Maps street view has what appears to be THE CAR parked in front of “5546 W. Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA” taken March 2011. Enter the address I reference, switch to street view and click the white street arrow one click west and you’ll see the the vehicle change from a gold mini-SUV to a silver mercedes which looks like it.

    This suggests to me this person is a regular to that intersection and perhaps those businesses.

    Google Streetview blurs out license plates, so it’s not 100% conclusive that it’s the same vehicle, but that’s a really good observation and I would think it’s worth looking into.

    @cycler – I also wondered that myself.
