Below is information given to us by a resident who lives on the 2700 block where the accident occurred:
"A bicyclist was hit and knocked off his bike just south of the Mulholland intersection where the cars speed off Mulholland on to Outpost heading south.
The car did not stop but it was reported to be an orange Jeep. The accident occurred at 4pm today (6/29/12). The victim was taken away by paramedics with very severe head injuries. He was not conscious.
If there are any cameras that you know of aimed toward Outpost that picked up a Jeep at around 4pm headed south and the plates can be read it could be of great help to the police."
