Video: Cyclist Struck By Two Cars In Beverly Hills
A 47-year-old cyclist is in serious condition after being hit by a car and then run over by an SUV that fled the scene in Beverly Hills Sunday. One driver has been arrested in the hit and run.
The crash happened around 9:50 a.m. at the intersection of Robertson Boulevard and Burton Way Sunday, according to ABC 7. Police say that the cyclist was obeying all the traffic laws when he was struck. Surveillance video shows that a car slammed into the cyclist just as he was making a right-hand turn. That crash propelled the cyclist into the path of a black SUV stopped at a red light on the other side of the road.
Witness Josh Gutierrez told ABC that everyone was honking and screaming at the SUV not to go at the light: "Everyone's screaming, 'Stop. Stop. Don't move.'"
But the SUV ran over the cyclist and sped off. A witness chased after the SUV, and police eventually caught up with him and arrested him. The driver of the first car stayed at the scene and cooperated with police. The bicyclist is expected to survive, though his injuries are serious.
The ABC 7 newscast contains footage from the surveillance video that shows the disturbing crash. The video starts at about the 1:20-minute mark:
