The driver of the van, 31-year-old Eddie Hall, has no previous criminal record and no previous traffic citations on his record. The victim, identified only as George of the California Nomads, was on his way to a get-together with several other Angels at the Hells Angels Oakland chapter headquarters. He was pronounced dead at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley Saturday evening. Hall has been charged with felony hit and run, and there is no evidence to suggest that he was connected to the Angels in any way, or that there was any motive beyond road rage, which was suggested by a Hells Angels representative. The East Bay paratransit company for which Hall worked says he was a model employee.
