Police are hunting for a red Dodge in connection with a hit-and-run collision that left a bicyclist dead in Sun Valley late Thursday, officials said.
The collision took place about 8:35 p.m. on San Fernando Road, just west of Penrose Street, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.
Paramedics pronounced the bicyclist dead at the scene, he said.
The hit-and-run vehicle was described as a red, 2-door, Dodge R/T in a Los Angeles Police Department news release.
Police are also investigating whether the victim was struck by a second vehicle after the initial collision. The vehicle was described as a white truck but police have not confirmed if it made contact with the victim.
No further details were available.
The city offers a standing $50,000 reward for information that leads to the capture and conviction of drivers involved in fatal hit-and-run collisions.
