Police are turning to the public for help in the search for a driver who fled the scene of a fatal crash that killed a cyclist in Sun Valley on Friday.
The collision occurred around 6:15 am when the driver of a white flatbed truck reportedly turned left onto Lankershim Boulevard from Tuxford Street, hitting a cyclist who was crossing the square at a pedestrian crossing.
After the first collision, the cyclist was again hit by a second vehicle, a Volkswagen Jetta. This driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
LAPD officers are now looking for the driver of a flatbed truck, who, without stopping, fled the scene. They are said to have headed north along Lankershim Boulevard.
The cyclist, whose identity has not yet been released, died at the scene.
Anyone who witnessed the clash or who has additional information has been asked to contact investigators at (818) 644-8033.
