The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors offered a $25,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to the apprehension of motorists who ran down a 24-year-old bicyclist on the Terminal Island (74) Freeway.

Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended the reward in the case of San Pedro resident Cole Micek, whose body was found around 3 a.m. March 3 by Long Beach police officers.

Micek had been riding on the freeway at Pier A Way when he was struck by two vehicles whose drivers fled before police arrived. Micek died at the scene.

Investigators released images of a late-model white Toyota Camry and a 1990s-era Honda Accord with a sunroof and dark hood, which they believe may have been involved in the collision.

Anyone with information on the hit-and-run drivers was urged to call Long Beach police Detective Sirilo Garcia at (562) 570-7132 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
