Teen from Huntington Beach Detained in Connection with Three Hit-and-Runs Against Cyclists

Huntington Beach teen arrested for hit and run on cyclists

A young teen from Huntington Beach was detained on Tuesday night in connection with a series of three hit-and-run accidents that appeared to target bicycle riders and resulted in the death of one of them.

The unnamed youngster was taken into custody at around 9 p.m. and was later charged with one crime of murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, according to a news release from the Huntington Beach Police Department.

On Sunday night, a car struck three bikers, killing 70-year-old Huntington Beach resident Steven Gonzales as a result. Less than a mile separated the three crashes, which happened all within a 45-minute period.

Chief of Police Eric Parra of Huntington Beach said, “I want to applaud the investigators who investigated these horrible acts for their persistent work in apprehending a dangerous criminal.

I also want to thank the general public for their support and information that helped us find the offender. Our primary goal is to ensure the safety of our city, and I want to reassure the locals that they are safe.”

The investigation is still ongoing as to why the driver ran down the victims with a car. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. As Huntington Beach car accident lawyers, we see terrible accidents like this far too often.

As of May 2024, the case is still pending.
