ECHO PARK — CBS2 has obtained a surveillance video of a hit-and-run driver who struck a cyclist on Alvarado Street near Sunset Boulevard last week, leaving the victim to writhe in pain in the middle of the street.
The video shows how the motorist of a dark-colored sedan drives off after hitting the cyclist, Michael Starr, following the collision early Friday morning. “Thought he was going to run me over,” Starr told CBS2.
The driver of the vehicle, described as a 5 or 7 Series BMW, did get out briefly at one point but then returned to his car and drove away, said Starr, who suffered some scrapes and bruises.
