A bicyclist was killed in Downtown early this morning when he was hit by a driver who took off after the crash.

The man was crossing the Alameda Street off-ramp of the 10 Freeway on his bike just before 2 a.m. when he was struck, City News Service reported. California Highway Patrol said the victim was between 35 and 40 years old.

CHP shut down both Alameda Street and the Alameda off-ramp after the incident for a couple of hours, but both have since been reopened, ABC7 reports.

Police do not yet have a description of the suspect or the vehicle.
