    A motorcyclist who died after colliding with an SUV in San Marcos early Sunday morning has been identified by the medical examiner's office.

    Officials say 30-year-old Ivan Vicente Angeles was riding on Las Flores Drive when he was broadsided by a Toyota 4Runner that was heading westbound on S. Santa Fe Avenue around 1:20 a.m.

    Angeles flew off his bike, continued down the road and hit the south curb of S. Santa Fe Avenue. 

    When deputies arrived, they found Angeles dead at the scene.

    The driver of the Toyota tried to flee down the road, but deputies later located him at the intersection of Bosstick Boulevard and S. Santa Fe Avenue, according to sheriff's officials. 

    The suspect has since been arrested for felony hit-and-run, gross vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence. 

    According to the medical examiner, Angeles lived alone in a San Marcos mobile home. 

    If you witnessed the crash, San Marcos deputies ask that you call 760-510-5042.
