As published by the Daily Breeze, AgnewBrusavich has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against James Rahman, alleging he purposefully struck John Bacon with his car while Bacon was riding his bicycle in Palos Verdes Estates, killing Bacon. The hit-and-run crash involving a white Ford F-150 pickup truck, which detectives later identified as Rahman’s, was captured by a security camera, showing the truck tailing Bacon before he was found injured on the ground. Rahman fled the scene without calling for emergency services.
A male driver of a white pick-up truck reportedly had been terrorizing cyclists on the road. “The Bacon family is grateful for the Palos Verdes Estates Police Department’s efforts in its year-long investigation. Anyone who saw the collision or events leading up to it or experienced aggressive acts by a male driver of a white pick-up truck is urged to come forward,” said Gerry Agnew of AgnewBrusavich.

On May 18, 2016, at approximately 9:30 am, Bacon, an experienced cyclist, was riding his bicycle on Granvia Altamira in Palos Verdes when Rahman drove his Ford F-150 pickup truck toward him. Rahman accelerated and veered towards Bacon, hitting him with his side-view mirror and knocking Bacon to the ground. Rahman fled the scene. Neighbors and bystanders came to Bacon’s aid and waited for first responders. Bacon was taken to a trauma center, still breathing and bleeding from his head and ears. Sadly, Bacon later died from his injuries.
Rahman, knowing Bacon was injured, stopped nearby bicyclists and told them a bicyclist had fallen, and they should call for help. Rahman fled the scene and did not identify himself; however, footage of the incident was captured on nearby surveillance cameras. Palos Verdes Estates detectives released a statement and a photo of the vehicle, urging individuals to come forward with more information. Police then received a tip from a local citizen identifying Rahman as the driver of the truck.
