Long Beach Fire Captain Embroiled in Hit and Run

Just last week  allegations surfaced that a Long Beach fire captain who allegedly was drunk when his vehicle hit a bicycle rider in a bike lane was facing felony charges of hit-and-run and DUI.  The accusations surround an incident that took place in the OC beach town of Seal Beach.  According to news releases, John Hines, 38, of Huntington Beach, was arrested when witnesses followed him to his home on April 1, after the roughly 1:30 p.m. accident occurred on Westminster Avenue April 1. The bicycle rider, whose name was withheld, suffered what Seal Beach police called “major head trauma.’ Hines allegedly was going about 60 mph when he swerved into the bike lane and struck the man east of Bolsa Chica Road.
