ID in motorcycle fatality given


A 25-year-old motorcyclist killed in a single-vehicle crash on Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road near the Angeles Crest Highway was publicly identified this week.

He was Geyson Rivera Moreno of Palmdale, according to the coroner’s office.

The crash was at 7:20 a.m. July 22, just west of County Fire Marker 8.00, the CHP reported.

The victim was riding a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R westbound on Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road, when he crossed the solid painted double yellow lines into the eastbound lanes. The motorcycle overturned and the victim was thrown from the bike. He struck the guardrail, south of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be have been factors in the crash. The CHP’s Altadena office asked anyone who saw the crash to call (626) 296-8100.
