lady justice 2 16-9

Hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter charges were filed Thursday against a 20-year-old man in the death of a bicyclist in Laguna Beach.

Dylan Thomas Randluby of Emerald Bay faces one count each of felony hit- and-run with injury and misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence, according to Deputy District Attorney Stephen Cornwell.

Randluby was driving a 2005 Toyota Prius north on North Coast Highway just before 7 p.m. last June 17 when he swerved — why was unclear — and his vehicle struck 55-year-old John Greg Colvin in the bike lane, Cornwell said.

Randluby kept driving north on Coast Highway until he stopped in the parking lot at El Morro Elementary School at 8681 North Coast Highway, according to Laguna Beach Police Capt. Jason Kravetz.

Two motorists called 911 and followed Randluby until he pulled over, Cornwell said.

Colvin’s liver was lacerated in the collision, the prosecutor said.

The windshield of Randluby’s car was shattered in the collision, Cornwell said.

Randluby faces up to four years in prison if he is convicted. He is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 18.
