Northridge Man Involved in Fatal Motorcycle Crash

Driver remained at the scene and was interviewed by police, and was not arrested or cited.

A young man who was killed when his motorcycle collided with a car driven by a Northridge resident was identified Tuesday.

Mina Rezkalla, 19, of Van Nuys, died at a hospital shortly after the 5 p.m. Monday collision at Gilmore and Kester avenues in Van Nuys, and he died at a hospital, according to Los Angeles police Officer Christopher No.

The other motorist -- Raymon Khoury, 62, of Northridge -- remained at the scene and was interviewed by police, and was not arrested or cited, No said.

"No crime was committed," No said.

Police said Khoury was driving a Mercedes-Benz E320 north on Kester Avenue and was turning left onto Gilmore Avenue when the car collided with the southbound motorcycle.

There are two kinds of motorcycle riders....those who have fallen and those who will.
