VIDEO: Judge Sets Bail at $100K for Hit-and-Run Suspect, John D. Rengil


Guam – A Superior Court Judge has set bail for a hit-and-run suspect at $100,000 for this morning’s auto-pedestrian accident along Y-seng-song Road in Dededo.

John Daniel Rengil, 24, appeared before a judge this morning and charged with DUI, reckless driving and two counts each DUI with injuries and reckless driving with injuries.

Police say Rengil was driving drunk swerving on the road when he struck two girls as they were walking to their bus stop. The girls were identified as JFK students, ages 14 and 15.

According to police and numerous witnesses, Rengil fled the scene. He was later found by police “passed out” in his car at a nearby Mobil gas station.

GMH Nursing Supervisor Cely Mangrobang says the 15 year old girl was admitted to the pediatric ward with a fractured hip. The 14 year old girl was discharged this afternoon with bruising to her face.

GPD Spokesman Officer A.J. Balajadia says Rengil had a blood alchol content of .28, more than three times the legal limit.
