The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has extended a $25,000 reward for information in the hit-and-run killing of a 24-year-old bicyclist on the Terminal Island Freeway last year.
Cole Micek, of San Pedro, was riding his bike near Pier A Way when he was struck by two vehicles whose drivers failed to call 911 and fled before police arrived around 3 a.m. on March 3, 2018.
Authorities offered the reward to help track down suspects shortly after Micek’s death, but it was set to expire Friday until the board voted yesterday to extend it.
“If anybody knows anything please call the police department,” the victim’s father, Chris Micek, said last year. “I know the [suspects] are out there; I know it was an accident, but you gotta have heart and come up and say something.”
Investigators previously released images of a late-model white Toyota Camry and a 1990s-era Honda Accord with a sunroof and dark hood, which they believe may have been involved in the collision.
Anyone with information on the hit-and-run drivers was urged to call Long Beach police Det. Sirilo Garcia at 562-570-7132.
