Suspect arraignment postponed in fatal hit and run cyclist case

By City News Service

Arraignment of a 19-year-old San Diego man arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run in the death of a bicycle rider in Rancho Santa Fe was postponed today (July 10).

Jin Hyuk Byun was arrested Sunday night in the death of 18-year-old Angel Bojorquez of Escondido, who died Friday.

Byun’s arraignment scheduled for this morning was postponed until tomorrow, July 11, Tanya Sierra of the District Attorney’s Office said.

Bojorquez, an Albertsons grocery store clerk, was found dead in shrubbery alongside a winding stretch of Via De La Valle around 2 a.m. Friday, July 6, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office reported, noting he was struck while riding his mountain bike home from work in Del Mar.

Investigators determined Bojorquez was traveling northbound south of Paseo Delicias when a northbound motorist drifted onto the right shoulder and struck him about an hour before his body was discovered, Parent said.

Citing evidence found at the scene, the CHP later released a description of damage believed to have been caused to the vehicle that struck Bojorquez.

Parent said a neighbor of Byun’s saw damage to his black 2008 Chevy Avalanche on Sunday and reported it.

When a CHP officer went to Byun’s home, he refused to cooperate, prompting investigators to obtain a search warrant, Parent said. The warrant was served and Byun was arrested.

Bojorquez’s bike had no light on it but authorities said he was wearing a reflective vest. He was single and lived in Escondido with older brother, aunt and uncle.

His brother, Steve, told reporters on Friday, July 6, that the two worked at the same grocery store and often drove to and from together but their schedules did not match up last Friday, so Bojorquez biked to work instead. He had only biked the 20 or so miles from work to home a few times, according to his older brother.
