Authorities say the man was traveling eastbound on 54th street on the dirt bike behind a dark-colored sedan. The driver in the car suddenly made a unsafe movement, leading to the bike crashing into the back of the car, the LAPD said.

During the crash, the motorcycle rider was thrown off the bike and landed on the pavement. However, the driver in the car failed to stop and left the scene without helping the victim.

Paramedics responded and transported the injured rider to California Hospital, but he later died of his injuries.
