MALIBU-- A drunk hit-and-run driver was found and arrested Sunday for striking a father and son bicycling on the Pacific Coast, killing the father.
Sheriff's lieutenants say Robert Sanchez, 30, of Oxnard hit cyclists with his Dodge Ram at 1:30 a.m. Sunday on PCH near Nicholas Beach Road.
The father, Rodrigo Armas, 44, died on the scene, said the Sheriff's Dept. He was a Los Angeles County Deputy Probation Officer from Kern County.
The son, who is 14 years old, was transported to UCLA medical center and is in "stable" condition, but suffers from "numerous broken bones," say officials.
Armas and his son were participating in the "Grand Tour," an annual 200 mile bike ride that is centered around Malibu.
Sanchez will likely be charged with felony vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence, and hit-and-run, said Chew.
