Authorities Monday were seeking the public’s help to identify a hospitalized bicyclist who was badly injured in collision in Torrance.

The man was riding a bicycle at about 9 a.m. Thursday in the area of 223rd Street and Vermont Avenue, near the Harbor (110) Freeway, when he was struck by a car and taken by paramedics to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, the hospital said in a statement.

He was brought to the hospital without documentation or evidence of his identity.

The man was described as “possibly Asian,” between 50 and 60 years old, 5 feet 3 inches tall and 150 pounds with a muscular build. He has short dark brown hair that is graying and may be balding in the front, and his bicycle was reported to be spray-painted various colors.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity was asked to contact Harbor-UCLA Medical Center at 424-306-6310.
