R.I.P. LUIS GARCIA
Thread started by Joe Borfo at 09.15.13 - 12:41 pm

I didn't know him, but he was a rida. It's on FB and Twitter and I thought it should be posted here.

He was riding home after the downtown races in a small group of friends and they got hit by some drunk who left the scene. He was left in the road and another car ran him over, killing him. The other two are hospitalized. The drunk driver later turned herself in.

http://bikinginla.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/breaking-news-two-cyclists-injured-one-killed-by-second-driver-in-drunken-early-morning-hit-and-run/

I ride this area frequently at night... This is really tragic.

Ride In Peace, Luis.

Riders, please use lights. And if you don't use lights, use common sense. Use all senses out there. You can't control some jerk getting into a car and driving drunk but remember that LA County is number one in hit and runs. You might be at the wrong place and the wrong time but if we do our best to be seen, those times are less likely... but I still believe that your time to go is your time to go. I suggest investing in a Go-Pro and strapping a constant surveillance system on your body. If the NSA is doing it, why not you?

Please don't drink and drive.

Bright lights don't necessarily prevent drunk drivers from hitting cyclists:

Wearing a helmet doesn't necessarily prevent cyclists from dying when struck by a car:

Since this has become a safety thread and not a memorial as it was intended to be. Nothing is more effective at night than reflectors. I know most don't have them but they are way better at pointing you at to any light coming your way.. Especially on the pedals and wheels. Those set of reflectors will bring more attention to you than a obnoxious strobing lcd light.

Rest in peace friend... and really guys were gonna discuss weather we should take steps to protect ourselves or not...maybe yall should go ahead and give up riding before we have to place some more ghost bikes. just sayin helmets an lights always help and never hurt its a no brainer, and for the record Andy was one of the safest and most responsible riders i've ridden with. Period.

Andy was the homie. He will be missed. He did have a helmet on and all six ridazz had lights. Front to back. She hit 3 ridazz. The driver was drinking, and driving fast. Positive all the homies riding in that group always use common sense.

Breaking news ó Two cyclists injured, one killed by second driver in drunken early morning hit-and-run
September 14, 2013
Iíve just gotten word from the LAPD that a bike rider was killed, and two others injured in a hit-and-run early this morning.

Or rather, the victim most likely died because the driver failed to stop at the scene as required by law and basic human decency.

According to the press release, 28-year old Los Angeles resident Ulises Melgar, 30-year old Mario Lopez of Bellflower and 21-year old Bell Flower resident Luis Garcia were riding east on Cesar Chavez Avenue at Mission Road with two other bicyclists at approximately 2:45 am Saturday.

They were rear-ended by an eastbound 2013 Toyota Corolla driven by 21-year old Wendy Villegas, knocking all three off their bikes and into the street.

Villegas fled the scene, leaving her victims lying in the street. She drove to her home, where she told her parents sheíd been in a collision, and asked them to call the police.

Unfortunately, it was too late.

Just moments after Villegas ran away, 21-year old Jimmy Marroquin was driving east on Cesar Chavez in a 1994 Nissan Quest. He didnít see Garcia lying in the roadway and struck him with his SUV, dragging his body a short distance.

Had Villegas stayed at the scene, she could have directed other drivers around the people lying in the street until they could move or help could arrive. Ot at the very least, Marroquin would have been more likely to see the collision and drive more carefully around it.

Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene. Whether he could have survived the initial collision if he hadnít been struck a second time is a matter of speculation.

However, the other two victims only suffered minor injuries, which suggests that his injuries might have been survivable. Lopez was treated by paramedics at the scene, while Melgar was taken to the ER at USC Medical Center.

Meanwhile, Villegas confessed to police that she had been drinking and left the scene of the collision. She was booked for hit-and-run resulting in injury or death (CVC 20001(a)) and vehicular manslaughter while under the influence (Penal Code 191.5).

In other words, police investigators are blaming her for Garciaís death.

The collision is still under investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact Central Traffic Detective M. Kaden at (213) 972-1837 or Officer R. Cortez at (213) 972-1846; or call the Central Traffic Divisionís Watch Commander at (213) 972-1853 during the weekend or off hours.

This is the 66th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the 28th in Los Angeles County; that compares to 23 in the county for all of last year. It is also the 12th biking death in the City of Los Angeles, compared to five in each of the last year two years.

Thatís nearly two-and-a-half times the cityís cycling death toll for 2011 and 2012, with over three months left in the year.

And horrifyingly, nine of those 12 deaths have been hit-and-runs.

My prayers and deepest sympathy for Luis Garcia and his loved ones.

Thanks to LAPD Central Traffic bike liaison Sgt. Laszlo Sandor for the heads-up.

Andy was young and smart, happy and aware. Now he's gone and all the lights and the nicest helmet wouldn't prevent you from being at the wrong place and the wrong time. I apologize for any disrespect I might have caused.

I still stand with the rest of what I said. Drinking and driving, and to the extent where drinking and riding can make you a serious road hazard, must not be tolerated. I do my part anytime I see a car swerving, running lights, making fast unsafe turns with pedestrians about to cross, intimidating cyclist....etc.... I call 911 and report their drunk asses. The use of cops to stop the irresponsible use of a drug we have legalized is something to promote because nothing pisses me off more than seeing cops give bullshit tickets instead of actively patrolling the streets for drunk drivers and violent crimes.

Next time I am out riding, I will make it a goal to patrol streets around bars and liquor stores and report any drivers who are obviously fucked up. If you drink and drive, not only do you have to watch out for the blacks and whites, but be aware that a long haired freak like me will not let your drunk freak flag fly friendo. Fuck all drunk drivers. I seriously would love it if a DUI got your license suspended for 5 years on the first offense plus 2 months jail time and a 3000 dollar fine, license suspension for life on the second plus 1 year in prison and a 10000 dollar fine, and banishment to DUI Island for life on the third offense.... and mandatory liver removal if you kill anyone while drinking and driving. Said liver could be given to someone who is more deserving while you fucking die, you liver-less twat! This would end most DUI's over night and people will still drink, but much more responsibly too.

Rest in peace Andy, I never met you but you were good to this world and we will all miss you.

I shouldn't of assumed any thing and I only implored people to use lights because of the six riders, three got hit, and Andy was hit by a second motorist because he couldn't see him laying there. It all happened so fast and that Wendy cunt should of stopped but she didn't. Sorry for your loss man.
