EL PASO – Investigators have released the name of a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash in Northeast El Paso.

He's 26-year-old Gregory Ramirez.

Police said Ramirez was heading westbound on Hercules around 6:30 p.m. Saturday when a 2007 Dodge Caliber was traveling south on Comet being driven by a 16 year old girl.

The two collided in the intersection after the Caliber drove into the path of the motorcycle.

Ramirez was transported to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation has shown that Ramirez was wearing a helmet and at this time speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this crash.

No charges have been filed.

I.m surprised there are no more accidents at that location. Cars park on the curbs where there are yellow painted curbs and it is hard to see cars driving west on Hercules, so motorcycles would be almost impossible to see. I thought that if the curb is painted yellow, it means no parking.

I apologize, the above post is a mess.....
The young lady who was interviewed on your news cast, is not the Greg's girlfriend. He has a fiance, who unconsolable and a little girl, whom he was daddy to and a mother-in-law, sisters-in-law, all of whom are at a total loss and trying to figure out how to tell baby girl why daddy is not around. Please make clear this matter up, for the interview only added fuel to an alread burning heart in pain.
Thanks for your attention to this matter.

please news ch 9, the female in this video is NOT his girl-friend. There is a long time girl-friend and little girl, who she called daddy, at home grieving at home along with the lady he called mother-in-law, this interview added fuel to an already burning heart. Please correct this publically

When I moved to this town in 1973 it was the safest, friendliest motorcycle town I had ever lived in.
In the last 15 years El Paso has become a nightmare for anyone on two wheels. I've been hit twice sitting at stop signs, can't count how many times I've been forced into another lane on the freeway or into on coming traffic on two lane roads.
Who's bright idea was it to but steel cables down the center Of Transmoutain and the freeway? Are they trying to make hamburger out of us?
