Cyclists Honor 21-Year-Old Man Killed In Hit-And-Run

ORANGE (CBSLA.com) — Dozens of cyclists Wednesday honored a 21-year-old man who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Orange.

Friends and family gathered at a makeshift memorial on Santiago Canyon Road, where bicyclist Joseph Robinson was killed early Sunday.

“I can’t tell you how important this stuff is to the family at this time. We all loved Joe and we’re missing him a lot,” Robinson’s father, Cliff, said.

“This has been such an honor, an honor for him. It’s all about Joe today,” the victim’s mother, Valerie Dubois, said.

Robinson was riding his bike when he was struck by a vehicle driven by 18-year-old suspect Sommer Gonzales, who was allegedly under the influence.

Gonzales was taken into custody in Rancho Santa Margarita after she fled the scene.

The suspect has since been released from jail as the investigation continues.
