 [KHTS] – The motorcyclist killed in a single-vehicle traffic collision on Newhall Ranch Road Saturday evening has been identified.

Daniel Curry Jr., 21, struck a fire hydrant at approximately 2:58 p.m. at the intersection of Newhall Ranch Road and Golden Valley Road, said officials with the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner.

Curry later succumbed to his injuries after being transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, said Lt. Rob Hahnlein with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

  9. Lisa Orefice Lisa Orefice says:

    So sad RIP. ☮☮☮

  10. I’m his mom, I don’t want to see any negative comments on here. He was a safe driver and all of MY friends that rose with him and they all said that he was a safer driver at all times. He lost control

  11. Carol Round Carol Round says:

    Incredibly sad, praying for his family and friends.

  12. My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

  13. So sad. RIP fellow rider.

  15. Is this the bike vs hydrant you saw Michele

  16. Dan Hoskins Dan Hoskins says:

    RIP. All riders know the danger. Prayers for his family.

  17. Melanie Siebe McMorrow I am very sorry for your and your families loss. Prayers for you.

  18. Michele says:

    I came up on this accident no more than a minute after it happened. It angered me to see a man park his car and start recording with his cell phone, while others just stood there with stupid “what should we do” looks on their faces. It was WATER – not flames. If you didn’t want to move the victim, I can understand that – but at LEAST shield him from the water that was pouring down on top of him so he didn’t drown in his helmet. Not one of you moved to help him. I rolled my window down and yelled for someone to get the water off him. Had I not had children in my car I would have gotten out and done it myself. To the disgusting @#*#%^ who recorded it on his cell phone, I hope karma bites you in the @#*. This was a human life, not some sideshow attraction.

  19. Dan Seeder Dan Seeder says:

    So very sad
    My prayers to his family and loved ones

    GOD SPEED

  20. Melanie and family I want to sent my thoughts and prayers during this troubling time and we my family r here for u if u need anything god bless and god speed

  21. Austin Dean Austin Dean says:

    I still can’t believe it…

  22. So sorry for your loss Melanie Siebe McMorrow. ❤💔

  23. Please people, stop making judgemental comments, this family is devestated.

  24. Mark Genter Mark Genter says:

    I’m so sorry for your loss Melanie, your in my prayers .

  25. Let’s remember that this is a local young man. This is a loss to our community to lose a young light. Remember that his friends and family will read your comments. As a community we need to come together and support Melanie Siebe McMorrow and her family not show our evil judgments. We do not know the cause of the accident and whether he was going fast or not, he was still a life that left too soon. Shame on anyone who feels that their opinion trumps the hurt caused by the comment. We are a small community, he could have been any of our family or friends. Recently our small town has lost too many young lives. If you don’t believe in prayer at least be a good person and show compassion towards the loss. For me I will pray for the family to find strength during this time. Please excuse any grammatical errors as I wrote this from my phone.

  26. RIP
    Prayers for u n family

  27. Please note Melanie is a good friend of mine and is so devastated by what has happened to her pride and joy her Son for God sake. Please please respect her and her angel that was taken from her.

  28. Heartbreaking!! We may not all know the family but know you are all surrounded by prayers!! I’m so sorry!!!! My heart aches for them 😔😔😔!!!!!

  29. Family and friends should grieve the loss of this man not be worried about Facebook comments. Everyone has an opinion. Who cares what strangers say. You just lost a child, worry about that right now.

  30. Sorry for your loss…prayers for your family♡♡♡

  31. So sorry for your great loss.

  32. Dave Pettis Dave Pettis says:

    There is a saying for motorcyclist. There are 2 kinds of riders. Those that have gone down and those that will. Sad but true! I’m so sorry for your loss. All riders please be safe!

  33. Jennifer Shaver says:

    Melanie, I have no words. I didn’t realize that it was your son that passed when I saw the messages on Facebook. You are the sweetest person and an amazing Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I don’t know what to say other than send you my love, thoughts, condolences and prayers.

  34. I had met your son a few times. He and my BF’s son Steven are friends and friends with Cole. They actually came to the house a few months ago. He was a very nice young man. We are so very sorry for your loss and send prayers for you and your family.

  35. I worked with his Mom for many years and just saw her 2 weeks ago. She is amazing, sweet and genuine. My heart breaks for her.

  43. Stephanie Horner says:

    Danny was a friend of my brother, Steven. He took me out and taught me how to drive his truck the day that I met him. I had so much fun with his crazy, adventurous self that night and I will never forget it. Even though I had only met him a few times, it was enough to know how amazing and kindhearted he truly was. I am so sorry about this awful tragedy and I will be praying for every single one of you during this hard time. Rest easy, Danny♡
