I'm sorry to hear about any car/bike accident, especially a death.
But is anyone else curious to hear about the status of Hu as a "visitor" (even if it is irrelevant to the accident and the more heinous act of the hit and run)
Was he here legally?
How does a "visitor" come to possess a bicycle?
What country does he come from....and did he know and follow the traffic laws of CA?
These little news item "teasers" from DE so often leave many interesting questions on the floor.

This comment leaves me wondering when the fence goes up around Danville and Alamo. The lead story yesterday on the news was that non- whites are out birthing whites. OMG. These interesting questions should be left on the floor. The dead man is not guilty simply because he road a bike in front of a Mercedes. At the end of the story who is the criminal? What does it take to leave a man to die alone on the concrete? Maybe the fence could keep you all in too.

Naturally, the driver of the hit and run car would be a lawyer... In Legal Ethics class at law school the lesson is if you can get away with it or get someone to believe you it's Right. What a shame.

FanDanville,

Excuse me? Your comment and query - 'How does a 'visitor' come to possess
a bicycle?' is so off tangent in this scenario. A man was killed. Hit and
run.

How is your question even relevant?

This is clearly a tragedy, and a crime to leave the scene of an accident. However, the operation of a bicycle at night also has some requirements for safety, including a headlight and tail light so that this type of accident is less likely to happen. The rules of the road apply to cyclists as well as motorists. (Ask any of the 30 or more bicyclists who have received tickets in Diablo for running stop signs.) We may never know if a costly mistake was made by Mr. Hy.

Clearly, the cowardice of the driver, in not taking responsibility for his/her actions is an abomination. I hope they are found and brought to accountability!

Clearly, Old Danvillian doesn't know what he's talking about. Professional Responsibility classes in law school do not teach you that if you can get away with it or convince someone to believe you, then it's right. What hogwash.

You're right Dave, lawyers instruct their clients on how to get away with it.

How did a coroner's technician discern he was 'visiting the area, possibly from abroad'? Postcards in his pocket? Lots of sunscreen and maps? A phrasebook?
