On March 24, 18-year-old David Granados was killed after being hit by a vehicle while riding his bicycle in Valley Glen. The driver, suspected to own a 2000 or 2004 Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV, hit the bicyclist and then sped away without stopping to help. Now Los Angeles is considering offering a $50,000 reward to find the driver who killed Granados.

Granados was riding his bike, crossing Oxnard St. on Bellaire Avenue when the vehicle ran a red light going westbound on Oxnard and hit him in the intersection. Surveillance cameras show the accident; however, the identity of the driver is unclear in the footage as well as the exact model of the car.

The 18-year-old was immediately taken to the hospital, but died the next day.

The City Council must approve the reward before it can be allowed; however, if there is any information about the case, contact the police immediately.

Bicycle accidents occur frequently, especially in Los Angeles. Not all streets have bike lanes, and even the ones that do cannot always encompass a cyclist sufficiently due to traffic, construction zones, buses, etc. While driving in a vehicle, it is crucial to be aware of everything that surrounds the car. That includes motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
