Joey Annocki, Malibu Motorcycle Rider, Fatally Hit by Oklahoma Tourists in Rental Car
Last night, police identified a motorcyclist who died on the Pacific Coast Highway on Wednesday as 41-year-old Joseph Annocki, a Los Angeles resident originally from Pennsylvania.
Annocki was heading east on the PCH near Zuma Beach at about 8:45 p.m. just as a white sedan -- driven by two tourists from Oklahoma -- pulled out of the parking lot for Geoffrey's Malibu, a ritzy seaside restaurant.
The driver of the rental car, immediately identified as 50-year-old Terry Turner, passed all sobriety tests conducted by Malibu/Lost Hills sheriff's deputies at the scene.
According to City News Service, Turner told deputies that he and his passenger -- 47-year-old Donna Martin -- were on vacation in SoCal.
Annocki was declared dead where he lay. His Facebook profile names his hometown as Philadelphia, PA, and lists Orange County Choppers, a custom motorcycle manufacturer, as one of his interests.
