Woman Arrested in 60 Freeway Fatal Hit-and-Run Charged

Kurt Ferguson, a 28-year-old Walnut man, died after his motorcycle hit that rear of the car Ho was driving.

A Rowland Heights woman arrested Sunday after a fatal hit-and-run accident that killed a Walnut man will face charges.

Ai Jung Ho, 57, was charged today with one misdemeanor count of hit-and-run driving, said Shiara Davila-Morales, a Los Angeles County District Attorney's office spokeswoman.  She was expected to be arraigned in Los Angeles County Superior Court today, but information on any plea was not available at the time of this report.

Kurt Ferguson, a 28-year-old Walnut man, died early Sunday morning after he crashed his Yamaha bike into the rear of Ho's 1995 Lexus SC300 on the 60 freeway near Industry, authorities said.

Ho reportedly was arrested a couple hours after the crash and was being held on $50,000 bail at least until today's court date.

Likely illegals, but if you are a woman are you going to stop on the freeway in the middle of the night to meet up with another pissed off driver??? Rather get caught for hit and run than be found dead in the morning.

It seems he ran into her before he died. Her crime was in not stopping/leaving the scene of the accident. It should be investigated whether she stopped short, causing him to run into her but so far she seems to be charged with leaving the scene. Just a horrible accident all the way around

More comments: I guess you could still stop and stay in your locked car, call 911 and wait until the police arrived at the accident. Also in a motorcycle crash, the car can block the lane and prevent the injured rider from being hit by oncoming traffic. Ho should not have left the scene.

Both of my sons were in wrestling with Kurt and his brother while at WHS.

My boyfriend was a coworker and close friend of Kurt's, we're both beyond shocked and deeply saddened by the news. He was such an outgoing, fun loving guy and he will truly be missed. Never got that one last riding trip in.
