LOS ANGELES — Cops are searching for three hit-and-run drivers who mowed down the same man one after the other on a Los Angeles street, leaving him dead in the road.
The incident occurred in the South Los Angeles neighborhood of Florence when a motorcyclist travelling north struck 50-year-old Jose Fuentes as he crossed the street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
In surveillance video released by the LAPD, Fuentes can be seen lying in the road after being struck by the motorcycle as it speeds away. Just seconds later he is then hit by a white sedan which also fled the scene after the collision, according to cops.
In a separate video released by cops, the man on the motorcycle can be seen stopping further down the road before getting back on his motorcycle and fleeing.
“Nobody stopped and helped out Mr. Fuentes as he lay there,” said LAPD Detective Ryan Moreno. “The guy on the motorcycle, he kind of went out onto the street, maybe he could have stopped to block traffic and prevented even the second or third collision from happening. But he elected to get on his motorcycle and took off and left and fled the scene.”
Fuentes was subsequently hit a third time, but that motorist didn’t stop either, cops said.
Authorities are searching for all three suspects and say that they are looking for a dark colored sports bike being driven by a man as well as a white colored sedan. Anyone with information is asked to contact the LAPD’s South Traffic Division.
