Motorcyclist Killed in Hit and Run Accident in Winnetka 8-1-2017

Hit-and-Run Driver Leaves Motorcyclist to Die in Winnetka, Wanted by LAPD

Police have asked the public to help identify the hit-and-run driver who left a motorcyclist to die, after the two were involved in a collision in Winnetka on Tuesday night, August 1, 2017.

The crash occurred at around 8:30 p.m. A black sedan, possibly a BMW with black windows and dark rims, was driving westbound when the car turned left in front of the motorcyclist who was traveling eastbound.

The result of the crash was gruesome. The force of the crash sent the motorcyclist flying into a van, parked on Sherman Way near Oakdale Avenue, and actually broke through the van due to the speed involved in the accident.

The driver monetarily stopped to assess the damage, but neither identified himself nor assisted the motorcyclist before fleeing the scene. The man has been described as an Armenian or Hispanic man in his late 20s or early 30s.

There is a $50,000 reward for any information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the driver.
