Bicyclist killed in hit-and-run crash

“Investigators say the driver in a hit-and-run crash was inside a white van in Lake Forest.”

A 47-year-old man died after he was struck in a hit-and-run crash along Serrano Road Tuesday night.

Sheriff’s officials said a witness saw a white van leaving the area, and investigators are now asking for the public’s help to identify the driver of the van, who fled after the 47-year-old bicyclist was hit.

The crash was reported at 10:11 p.m. near the intersection of Serrano Road and Ridge Route, said Lt. Jim England of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The vehicle, described only as a white van, was spotted leaving the crash northbound on Serrano Road, he said.

Paramedics took the bicyclist to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, England said.

The sheriff’s Major Accident Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash.
