Suspect Sought After Bicyclist Struck On La 308 In Galliano

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for an alleged hit and run that occurred earlier this month in South Lafourche.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Friday, September 6, deputies responded to LA Highway 308 near the intersection at East 172nd Street in Galliano after receiving a call that a bicyclist was struck by a vehicle.

Lafourche Ambulance District #1 also responded to the scene and eventually transported to the male victim to the hospital for treatment.

Deputies learned the man was riding his bicycle on the shoulder of the highway when a southbound vehicle allegedly struck him and his bike.

The vehicle is described as being dark in color and either a medium-sized sport-utility vehicle or car.

Deputies are asking anyone who can identify the suspect, or anyone with information on this case, to contact Bayou Region Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting “GIVEATIP” plus your message to 274637. Tips can also be submitted using the TipSubmit Mobile application or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org or via the “Submit a Tip” tab on the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office official Facebook Page.

Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 in cash if the information given leads to an arrest.
