Police believe this silver Ford Mustang convertible may be connected to the fatal hit-and-run that killed a bicyclist Monday night. The windshield glass was shattered.
A bicyclist who was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Northridge died in the hospital Tuesday morning just hours after the crash, police said.
A man in his 20s or 30s was riding his bike near the intersection of Plummer Street and Winnetka Avenue when a driver struck him before fleeing about 9 p.m. Monday, said Lt. Debra Brounsten of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division.
The victim was transported to Northridge Hospital, where he died hours later, Brounsten said.
Police found a silver Ford Mustang convertible they believe is connected to the hit-and-run on the 10100 block of Oso Avenue, and video from the scene showed the sports car with a shattered windshield.
Police were still searching for the driver as of Tuesday morning.
No further details were immediately available.
