Angelo Gordon VP Dies In Motorcycle Hit-And-Run

Sep 21 2010 | 8:57am ET

An Angelo Gordon executive was killed on Sunday in a hit-and-run accident in Manhattan.

Ronen Katz was riding his Ducati motorcycle on New York’s busy West Street when he was hit by 25-year-old Naisha Sutton, who was allegedly making an illegal left turn from Canal Street. Katz was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital; he was 27 years old.

Katz was a vice president at Angelo Gordon’s financial division. The Israeli native joined the firm in 2005 after earning a trio of degrees at the University of Pennsylvania and working as an intern at Merrill Lynch. He bought the Ducati just one month ago.

Sutton, a single mother of two from the Brooklyn, reportedly did stop after the accident but then left. She later turned herself in to police and has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license. Sutton is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail.
