Neighbors say Kelly had a history of severe depression and had recently lost his mother.

The first victim, Eddie Fragoso, 24, was riding to the beach with friends, he was crossing the intersection at Speedway and Washington when a red Honda CR-V clipped the back tire of his bike.

Witnesses dining at Mercedes on Washington said the driver of  a car “did not even hit the breaks he just sped on off up Speedway.”

When Fragoso and his friends realized the driver was not stopping they gave chase.

“We saw him driving towards another bike rider and we called for the rider to look out, he pulled to the side of Speedway and the car veered towards him. It looked like the driver meant to hit the guy” Fragoso said.

The second victim a man in his 20s was knocked to the ground at Speedway and 27th, his side cut open and bike left mangled on the road.
