Fatal Motorcycle Accident on Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park

Echo Park, California – A 29-year-old man was killed Monday morning in an Echo Park hit-and-run crash on Glendale Boulevard near Reservoir Street.

The Los Angeles Police Department said a passenger van driver allegedly made an unsafe U-turn direct in front of a 2003 Yamaha 600R motorcycle.

The collision happened at 6:30 a.m. on December 7.

The van driver stopped shortly after the crash and then drove away southbound on Glendale Boulevard.

The motorcyclist was taken to a hospital with critical injuries, where he was later pronounced dead. His name was not released pending family notification.

The suspect vehicle was described as a red or maroon customized Chevy Astro van manufactured in the late 1990s or early 2000s.

Police are investigating the accident. Anyone with additional information about the crash is asked to call LAPD Officer McGowan at (213) 486-0761.
