Fuentes crossed the street when he was first hit by an engine.
A man was hit and killed by three separately collided drivers, all of whom fled the scene after colliding with him as he crossed the street, and now police are asking the public for help in locating the perpetrators.
The incident occurred at about 7:39 p.m. in Florence’s South Los Angeles neighborhood when 50-year-old Jose Fuentes crossed the street when a motorcycle heading north collided with him, the Los Angeles Police Department writes.
The video released by the LAPD shows Fuentes lying on the road after being hit by a motorcycle as he rushes away. A few seconds later, Fuentes is hit by a white sedan that also fled the scene after the collision, writes ABC News Los Angeles station KABC.
A separate video of the same accident, published by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southern Transportation Department, shows the motorcyclist stopping somewhere on the road before getting on a motorcycle again and running away.
“No one stopped and helped Mr. Fuentes out when he lied,” LAPD investigator Ryan Moreno told the press. – The guy on the motorcycle, maybe he went out on the street [he could have] stopped to block traffic and even prevented a second or third collision. But he decided to get on his bike, got on, left and fled the scene.
Fuentes was hit for the third time since the motorcycle and the white sedan were hit, but police did not release information about the vehicle or a possible description of the suspect. None of the three vehicles stopped after hitting Fuentes.
Authorities are now searching for all three suspects, but all they can say is that they are looking for a dark-colored sports bike driven by a man and a white sedan.
The LAPD said in a separate written statement on its website: “On April 15, 2015, the City Council amended the Los Angeles Administrative Code and established the Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund. There is a reward of up to $ 50,000 for members of the community who, through a civil compromise, provide information that leads to the identification, apprehension, conviction, or resolution of the perpetrator. “
Anyone with information about Fuentes ’death should contact the LAPD Southern Traffic Department.
