  • Where’s Marcie?

  • If there is a large part of the mirror assembly with any numbers embossed, a Google search of those numbers may get L.E. a make and even model.

    • I would wager they know this, given their past determination of vehicle make, model, and approximate year from parts at hit and run collisions…

  • Stay safe folks

    Hope the biker is ok. Dangerous to ride the highway in the dark. Not sure exact location, but lots of curves and narrow shoulders.

  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    That’s a very open stretch of road leading to the grade climb.

    The 101 is so popular with cyclists, yet too many places have what can barely be called a shoulder for bicycles.

    Somehow a bike path away from the road needs to be built.

    It’s amazing that more cyclists aren’t injured.

    • Because it’s too much to ask people to be careful when they get behind the steering wheel of an automobile?

  • It was still a hit and run.

  • I think it’s funny how every commenter is an investigator with all these unreal methods of tracking down criminals. If you know so much join the force you know it all.

    • Sharpen your pencil

      And you know? Nothing…….. You just came on here and made an even more pointless comment, great job brain surgeon!

  • Any road is only as dangerous as the drivers on that road choose to make it.

  • Just texting along and all of the sudden”BAM!”

  • What kind of sad excuse hits and runs? PLEASE just slow the
    f^%$ down people.

  • Does anyone know of the road IChie Pitpeci in Orleans, Ca. That is like driving on a sidewalk. I used to take Kenny Dowd out that way to visit his mom. Sorry I know I misspelled the road. Can be scary.
