Man in 50s killed killed riding bike in crosswalk in West Adams hit-and-run

Once again, a Southern California driver has left an innocent victim to die alone in the street.

According to multiple sources, a man was killed when he was struck by a driver LA’s West Adams neighborhood late Thursday night.

The crash occurred as he was while riding his bike in a crosswalk at the intersection of Hauser Blvd and Adams Blvd around 11:35 pm.

The victim died at the scene. He’s identified only as a Hispanic man in his 50s, who appeared to be homeless.

The driver fled following the crash; no description was given of the suspect or their vehicle.

Anyone with information is urged to call 877/527-3247.

This is at least the 72nd bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the 23rd that I’m aware of in Los Angeles County; he’s also the 13th person killed riding a bike in the City of Los Angeles.

Twenty-three of those SoCal victims have been killed by hit-and-run drivers.

My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his loved ones. 

Thanks to bike lawyer James Johnson for the heads-up.
