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.
