The Santa Monica Police Department needs your assistance in
identifying and locating a vehicle involved in a felony hit and run
traffic collision.

On January 17, 2009 at about 12:30, a 33 year-old male bicyclist
riding southbound on 20th Street at Arizona Avenue was struck by an
unknown vehicle. After striking the cyclist, the vehicle ran over the
bicycle and the rider’s body and then left the scene without rendering
any assistance or notifying the police. There is no description of the
vehicle at this time; however, it may have front scratches or dents
and possibly a cracked windshield. The bicyclist is currently in
critical condition at a local hospital

  1. That is crazy! Who could leave someone for dead like that. Please post an update of the incident. I live in SM and always thought the area was bike friendly. Another great reason to have lights on both ends of your bike!
