Crash kills one, injures one

RANCHO DISTRICT -- Burbank Police are continuing their

investigation into a motorcycle crash that killed one man and

critically injured a second.

Corey Petrie, 19, of Sun Valley, was in critical condition Friday

with a head injury at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. Petrie

was a passenger on the motorcycle when it crashed near Riverside and


Beachwood drives about 10:10 p.m. Wednesday.

The driver, Theodore Green, 21, of Santa Clarita, was killed in

the crash.

Green lost control of the motorcycle as he was eastbound on

Riverside Drive. The motorcycle struck the curb, tossing both Green

and Petrie, police said.

As part of its investigation, the department will reconstruct the

scene using skid marks, points of impact, road condition, weight of

the motorcycle to determine how fast it was going at the time of the

crash, Sgt. Jay Jette said.

"From witness statements, there is nothing to indicate another

vehicle was involved," Jette said. "At this time, excessive speed was

a major factor."
