Police were searching Thursday for the driver of a silver minivan involved in a hit-and-run collision with a cyclist in the Harvard Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The victim, 22-year-old Jeff Miranda, told KTLA he was blindsided when he was struck around 3 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of Venice Liquor on the corner of Venice and Hobart boulevards.
After it hit him, Miranda said the minivan kept going even with his bike still wedged underneath it.
The minivan was later spotted on a home surveillance camera a few blocks away as the driver stopped just long enough to remove the mangled bike from under his vehicle before driving off again.
Miranda suffered a number of cuts and bruises and required six staples to close a wound to his head.
Anyone with information was urged to call the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division.
