Detectives Tuesday sought the public’s help in identifying a driver whose Mini Cooper struck and seriously injured a bicyclist in Silver Lake.
The victim was struck head-on by what’s believed to be a red early model Mini Cooper with a red-and-white roof about 11:45 p.m. Friday in the 3000 block of Berkeley Avenue.
“The victim sustained severe injuries and was admitted to a local hospital where he is in stable condition,” according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement.
The vehicle likely has damage to its front end, hood and windshield, police said.
Anyone with information about the collision, the car or the driver is urged to contact Detective Juan Campos of the LAPD’s Central Traffic Division at 213-833-3713 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tipsters can also contact the Central Traffic Division watch commander at 213-833-3746.
