KOREATOWN: Bicyclist Fatally Struck; Wilshire Boulevard Shut Down

A portion of Wilshire Boulevard has been shut in Koreatown after a deadly crash involving a bicyclist this morning.
Authorities were called to the 3300 block of Wilshire Boulevard around 3:00 AM. A witness says the bicyclist was sitting near the center median when the driver of a BMW struck the victim.
Video shows paramedics covering the body with a white sheet, indicating a deceased person.
It’s unclear what the cyclist was doing on the street before the accident.
The driver of the BMW stayed at the scene.
Police appear to be having issues speaking to the driver because the driver appears to only speak Korean.
