Motorcycle Crash Victim Identified

The deceased victim who collided with a second motorcyclist on Angeles Crest Highway has been identified as a 30-year-old man from Hawthorne.

Coroner's officials identified the motorcycle rider killed in a weekend crash on Angeles Crest Highway.

Junior Estuardo Quic-Ortiz, 30, of Hawthorne died from multiple blunt injuries, Los Angeles County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Tuesday. Quic-Ortiz was pronounced dead at the scene, just east of mile marker 63.37.

California Highway Patrol officers have said alcohol wasn't a factor in the 1:30 p.m. collision that involved a second motorcycle and injured rider 45-year-old Patrick Ramirez of San Dimas. 

According to the CHP, Quic-Ortiz was operating a 2000 Kawasaki ZR-7, Ramirez a 2000 Yamaha R6. Quiz-Ortiz was traveling westbound at an unknown speed while Ramirez was traveling eastbound at 40 miles per hour. At that point, for reasons Quic-Ortiz lost control of his motorcycle, was ejected and struck the second motorcycle.

Ramirez was thrown from his bike and slammed into the road, sustaining moderate injuries.

Montrose Search and Rescue gave medical attention to both victims at the scene of the crash.
