SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, California (March 28, 2013) – The Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division is seeking the public’s help in finding the hit-and-run driver who struck and critically injured a teenage bicyclist Sunday night at the intersection of Oxnard Street and Bellaire Avenue, according to a press release issued by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police describe the suspect as an older man of unknown ethnicity who was driving an older model, silver or grey Mercedes Benz ML.

About 6:30 p.m. on March 24, police say an 18-year-old boy was riding his bicyclist on Bellaire Avenue when he was struck by a driver who was traveling westbound on Oxnard Street, the report said. The victim suffered major injuries in the crash, but the driver fled the scene and left him in the street. Paramedics responded to the bicycle accident and transported the injured teenager by ambulance to a local hospital where he was treated.

“Pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists who are injured or killed by a hit-and-run driver may not realize they could be covered by their own insurance policy if they have uninsured or underinsured coverage on their policy,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have a case, as well as help you get the compensation you need to cover medical expenses and other costs after a hit-and-run crash.”
