Cops are looking for the driver in the latest in a string of hit-and-runs involving luxury vehicles in Los Angeles.

This one was fatal, ultimately killing bicyclist David Alexander Grandados after he peddled near Oxnard Street and Bellaire Avenue in Valley Village on Sunday, March 24.

According to cops, Granados was headed south on Bellaire when the Mercedes, going west on Oxnard, failed to stop, as required, and struck him. It happened about 6:30 p.m., cops say.

Granados died in a hospital the next day.

Today police announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture and arrest of the driver. They also recently released this video of the ML in action:

Detectives believe the vehicle is a 2000 to 2004 ML.
