Bicyclist identified after being killed in possible street racing crash in South LA


Authorities on Tuesday identified a bicyclist who was struck and killed the previous evening in a South Los Angeles crash that was being investigated as possible street racing.

James Findley, a resident of Los Angeles, died at the scene Monday after being hit by one of two speeding vehicles shortly before 10:30 p.m. in the 200 block of West 82nd Street, police and coroner’s officials said.

The male driver suspected of colliding with the victim remained at the scene and was detained, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson said. He was identified only as being in his late 20s.

The other driver fled the scene, according to the LAPD. A description of the second suspect and the vehicle being sought were not available.

Several parked cars were also struck in the incident, which left debris scattered across the roadway.
