The Orange County coroner’s office Saturday released the name of a motorcyclist killed in a hit-and-run crash on the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway in Orange.

Sixty-eight-year-old Ira Bushinsky was a Garden Grove resident, according to the coroner’s office.

The crash occurred about 5:40 a.m. Friday on the northbound 55 Freeway near Katella Avenue, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Bushinsky was in the No. 1 lane when a vehicle reportedly caused his motorcycle to fall, ejecting him onto the roadway, where he was run over by a 2019 Hyundai Sonata driven by a 48-year-old Riverside woman. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Santa Ana CHP office at 714-567-6000.
