Sometimes bad news takes a long time to surface.
That’s what happened Tuesday, as word finally broke that a bike rider was killed in a Bellflower hit-and-run last August.
Sheriff’s deputies have little information on the car or the driver, and no details were released on how the wreck occurred.
Anyone with information is urged asked to call the Lakewood Station’s Traffic Office at 562/623-3500.
This is the 67th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the 27th in Los Angeles County. Twelve of those have been victims of hit-and-runs, as have nine of the deaths in LA County.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for Bradley Miller and his family.
