Sheriff’s investigators on Sunday released a description of a woman being sought in connection with a Cudahy hit-and-run that left an adult male bicyclist hospitalized.

The 36-year-old victim, a Huntington Park resident, was traveling eastbound on Ardine Street about 9:02 p.m. when he was struck by a white or light-colored SUV that was heading northbound on Salt Lake Avenue, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The vehicle came to a stop about half a block north of the collision, then drove away, the statement said, adding that the driver did not call 911 or attempt to render aid to the bicyclist.

The injured man remained hospitalized as of Thursday, authorities said. His name and condition were not disclosed.

The female driver was described as middle-aged, Asian, with wavy black hair, of average height and weight.

The vehicle was said to be “newer,” with a tinted rear window and possible damage to the front grille and right quarter-panel.

Witnesses provided investigators with a license plate number, which was not released because it “may or may not be correct,” the news release stated.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call the sheriff’s East L.A. Traffic Investigation Unit at 323-981-5020.
