IN HIT-AND-RUN THAT LEFT CYCLIST INJURED

COSTA MESA, Calif. – The Costa Mesa Police Department (CMPD) is seeking the public’s help identifying the driver involved in a hit-and-run that left a cyclist injured.

Today, March 20, 2018, at approximately 8:20 a.m., officers, along with the Costa Mesa Fire & Rescue, were dispatched to Bristol Street and Red Hill Avenue in response to a hit-and-run that left a cyclist on the roadway. The caller, who reported the incident, was with the 56-year-old male victim on the roadway when first responders arrived.

The victim, who suffered a compound ankle fracture, was immediately transported to a nearby hospital and CMPD shut down the intersection to begin their investigation. It is believed that the driver involved in the hit-and-run was driving a 2012-2015 black Mercedes Benz SLK300 or SLK350.
