motorcyclist killed in malibu accident
On the afternoon of August 20, a 58-year-old motorcyclist from Marina Del Rey was killed in a Malibu accident, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

The fatal motorcycle crash occurred about 4:30 p.m. at an intersection on a mountain road above Malibu.

Florentino Couce, 58, of Marina Del Rey, was riding a 2015 Ducati northbound on Latigo Canyon Drive when a gray 2016 Mazda turned into his path from Ocean View Drive.

Couce struck the left side of the vehicle and was ejected from his bike. He was taken to UCLA Medical Center, where he later died.

The 19-year-old female driver of the Mazda sustained no injuries. She was not cited or arrested.

“At this time, investigators are still determining the cause of this tragic incident,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm. “Our thoughts are with Couce’s loved ones.”
