Early Thursday, April 27, 2017 Marcos Valenti, 27, of Huntington Park, along with a passenger, a 20-year-old woman (who has not been identified) was riding a 2008 GSXR600 on the 101 freeway at approximately 12:45am. It was reported that the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck the back of a Lexus GS400, ejecting both the rider and passenger. The female passenger was then struck by multiple other vehicles, and as a result, passed away from her injuries.
