Los Angeles, California – The Los Angeles Police Department offered a reward of $50,000 to any person who could provide information leading to the arrest of a suspected hit-and-run driver that left a bicyclist dead on June 27.

LAPD said on the day of the accident, Melvin Frye, 57, was riding a bicycle in a southwestern direction across Main Street south of 103rd Street when a Dodge Durango hit him at around 9:05 p.m.

The car was southbound on Main Street, and the driver continued driving south after the collision.

Frye sustained fatal injuries and died at the crash scene.

LAPD is asking those who may have information about the crash to contact Detective Keith Gonzales at (323) 421-2500 or call South Traffic Division Watch Commander at (323) 421-2577 during off-business hours.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
