    New Witness Re LBCC Crash: Motorcycle Rider Revved Motor, Then Took Off "Like A Rocket" Before Slamming Into/Igniting Car Driven By Prof. Gigliotti; A Second Motorcycle Rider Is Believed To Have Been Nearby...And LBPD Wants To Talk To Him (Not A Suspect)

    (October 10, 2006) -- LBPD says a new witness has come forward with information regarding the awful Oct. 4 collision at Carson St./Faculty Rd. that left LBCC Prof. Elisa Gigliotti fighting to recover from extremely serious burns involving most of her body.

    LBPD Public Information Officer Nancy Pratt tells that the motorcycle driver (aboard a GSXR-style high-performance motorcycle) was near the LBCC entrance/pedestrian crossing on Carson St., facing west between two cars (straddling two lanes of traffic) when -- the new witness indicates -- the motorcycle driver revved his motor, then took off "like a rocket."

    The new witness indicates that there was also a second motorcyclist nearby...but LBPD doesn't believe the two were racing and the second motorcyclist isn't facing charges, PIO Pratt said.

    LBPD investigators very much want to talk with the second motorcycle driver...and we post contact information below.

    After taking off "like a rocket," the first motorcycle driver reached a speed witnesses estimated at roughly 80 mph. PIO Pratt says LBPD investigators consider that estimate consistent with what they found at the accident scene.

    The collision ignited Prof. Gigliotti's car, leaving her critically burned. The motocycle rider died at the scene.

    If you are the second motorcycle rider -- or you know who he is -- LBPD asks that you please come forward and contact Detective Ray Dennison at (562) 570-7355.
