Benjamin Alexander Borick, 20, of Newhall was killed in a motorcycle crash Thursday, said Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department.

He died Thursday morning in a collision with a sports utility vehicle at 7:15 a.m., said Officer Francisco Villalobos of the California Highway Patrol.

Borick was traveling westbound on Highway 126, just east of Chiquito Canyon Road, on a 2005 Kawasaki EX500D at a high rate of speed, according to the CHP report.
