ANAHEIM – A bicyclist died Wednesday morning in what police believe was a hit-and-run crash.
The crash took place around 5:55 on East Orangethorpe Avenue east of North Lemon Street, said Lt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department.
When police arrived, they found the bicyclist dead beneath a green compact car in the right lane, officials said. The bicycle was left behind in the middle lane about 150 feet.
Based on evidence and witness statements, a driver in another vehicle may have hit the bicyclist first, then fled the scene, Dunn said. Orangethorpe was closed at Lemon as police investigated and vehicle access was restricted at Raymond Avenue, he said.
