Early Thursday morning, the Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) responded to an “auto versus a bicycle traffic accident” at the intersection of Rodeo Drive and North Santa Monica Boulevard. The collision was reported shortly after midnight on April 21 and resulted in major injuries sustained by the bicyclist who was transported to a local hospital by ambulance. According to the BHPD, the injured man remains hospitalized, and the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
While other outlets reported the incident was fatal, BHPD’s Lt. Giovanni Trejo disputed that.
“This accident was not a hit-and-run and not a fatality,” Trejo told the Courier. “We don’t have information on any other accidents in the area involving a fatality and a hit- and-run driver.”
