The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors renewed 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 in March.
Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended the reward, which was set to expire June 17, in the case of San Pedro resident Cole Micek, whose body was found around 3 a.m. March 3 by Long Beach police officers. The reward will now be available for at least another 90 days.
Micek had been riding on the freeway at Pier A Way when he was struck by two vehicles whose drivers failed to call 911 and 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).
