New Footage Shows Clearer Image of Road Rage Driver Who Deliberately Crashed Into Cyclist
Police in Beverly Hills have new footage that shows a clearer image of the motorist who deliberately drove his BMW into a cyclist earlier this month.
The brief clip, posted on L.A. Now, shows the white BMW 328i that was captured on video in an alley off Wilshire Boulevard on April 3, turning around and driving head on into a bicyclist.
The crash prompted the cyclist to punch the driver in the face through the open car window.
The Beverly Hills Police Department said in a release that the suspect they're looking for is a Middle Eastern or white man in his mid-30s with dark hair, dark eyes, and a thin build.
The cyclist's identity has not been released. He sustained non-life threatening injuries in the incident. The bicyclist reportedly told investigators he had a fight with the driver prior to the alley confrontation.
Anyone with information about the motorist is asked to contact the BHPD immediately.
