Authorities identify Whittier man killed in motorcycle crash

SOUTH WHITTIER — Coroner’s officials Friday released the name of a 55-year-old Whittier man who died in a motorcycle crash earlier this week.
Ronald Michael Allington died at a hospital shortly after Wednesday’s 3:05 p.m. collision at Mills Avenue and Reis Street in an unincorporated county area south of Whittier, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Assistant Chief of Operations Ed Winter said.
He was riding a Honda Shadow motorcycle south on Mills when a woman making a left turn from Reis onto Mills in an SUV apparently failed to see him and drove into his path, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Al Perez.
Alcohol or drugs were not initially believed to be a factor in the crash, which remained under investigation, he added. The driver of the SUV remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
