Motorcyclist in grave condition after Winnetka hit-and-run crash

WINNETKA, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- At least one person has been hospitalized in a multi-vehicle hit-and-run crash involving a motorcycle in the Winnetka area of Los Angeles.

The crash happened Tuesday night near Sherman Way and Oakdale Avenue, where two cars were seen partially mangled and a motorcycle completely destroyed.

Los Angeles police said the motorcycle rider was cut off by a black BMW, which then caused a chain-reaction crash. The motorcyclist slammed straight into the back of a parked van, and the BMW driver fled the scene, police said.

The motorcyclist suffered a severe leg injury and was transported to an area hospital in grave condition, according to authorities from the LAPD.

No further information was released.
