BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Skaters of all ages remembered one of their local heroes, Angel Rodriguez, on Tuesday just over a week after he was hit and killed by a car.
Some called 22-year-old Angel Rodriguez a Bakersfield skating legend saying he was someone who knew the best tricks and never stopped practicing and mentoring the younger skaters.
Rodriguez was killed last Monday while he was skating on Roberts Lane in Oildale. His family was on hand to participate in Go Skate Day, a day that is celebrated nationwide.
In honor of Rodriguez, friends sold food and drinks to raise money for funeral expenses and hosted a skating competition.
