The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner identified the motorcycle rider killed in a traffic collision involving a big rig on the northbound lanes of Highway 14 Thursday evening as Johnny Christensen, 40.
The Coroner’s Office had not determined a cause of death as of Saturday morning, though an examination was scheduled, according to the coroner’s website.
Santa Clarita resident Reina Fierroz-Lopez created a GoFundMe page Friday afternoon to raise $8,000 to help Christensen’s family cover expenses related to his death. The page had collected $1,940 as of Saturday afternoon.
Christensen is survived by his wife, Lidia, two daughters and parents.
