Officers said they noticed a Silver Ford Fusion with Texas plates driving erratically when it struck someone on a bicycle.

One witness says the driver swerved at him as well.

“There was a scream from all the bystanders and I was about a half-block away and I started running toward the scene,” said James Bergseid. “The car that was speeding away, I tried to get the license plate and he kind of swerved at me a little bit and kept going at a high speed.”

None of the injuries were life-threatening.

The driver was last seen near Universal Studios, about a mile from the hit-and-run.

    The two bicyclists are a well known influencer couple Marcus Johns and his wife Kristin. He broke his lower leg. Her femur was snapped in half. They both had surgery this morning. Truly awful situation.

    There were in fact 2 bicyclists and their names are Marcus & Kristin Johns who are influencers and YouTubers. Both married. They suffered terrible injuries in the hospital and won’t be able to walk for 4 months! They posted on their Instagram that the 2 men hit them on purpose in order to escape the cops because they were coming from a burglary. Truly such a tragic incident. I am SO glad they survived.
