Alhambra biker killed in hit-and-run was not wearing a helmet

The death of Jocelyn Young — a 24-year-old Alhambra resident who was killed on September 18 in a hit-and-run when biking home from Pasadena — was due to "multiple traumatic injuries" from a vehicle/person collision, according to the Los Angeles Coroner's office. The report indicates that Young was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.

Young was hit at around 1am on September 18 on Los Robles Avenue near Cordova Street. According to the Pasadena Sun she fell off her bike and was hit by a Dodge which continued south without stopping.

Pasadena Police later arrested an Alhambra man, Nicholas Avila, for vehicular manslaughter and booked him on suspicion of hit-and-run and driving under the influence on the day of the accident. Avila was released two days later, but the Pasadena Police Department is not looking for any other suspects in the case. The decision to release Avila was based on the need for “more than the 48 hours” that is allotted to department in order to press charges, Lieutenant Phulunte Riddle of the Pasadena Police Department told the Source. The investigation is currently pending submission to the District Attorney’s Office, Riddle said.

Around a dozen people gathered on September 20 for a memorial ride in honor of Young. Midnight Ridazz, a bike group, organized the ride, which started from Los Angeles and ended at the location where Young was killed.  The group commemorated Young with a “ghost bike,” which was locked to a street lamp near the scene of the incident, and is intended to remind motorists to share the road.
