DML News brings you the following information from KTLA.COM:

A pedestrian was hit by a car Wednesday afternoon during a vigil for a bicyclist who was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver a day earlier at the same location in South L.A., video from the scene showed.

Now the Los Angeles Police Department is looking for the drivers and vehicles involved in both hit-and-run crashes, and authorities say the vigil itself became violent and turned into an assault on an officer, which is also under investigation.

The article went on to state the following:

About 100 cyclists were at the vigil, and some drivers appeared upset that they had difficulty getting through the intersection. Several vehicles, including an apparent older-model gold Toyota sedan, were seen trying to push through the cyclists.

The cyclists “basically took over the intersection” and blocked cars, interfering with traffic, LAPD Capt. Rafael Ramirez said.

The person driving the car in the hit-and-run incident Wednesday was recorded fighting with the cuclists earlier, as was the man that was hit. The pedestrian victim was reportedly trying to keep the peace in interactions with the public.

KTLA reports that he “was apparently a friend of Frazier.” He was able to get up and limp to the sidewalk where he recieved assistance from others.
