Crash Kills Popular Singer

Ramon A. Gonzalez Adams

A popular latin music performer from Puerto Rico died in a motorcycle crash Saturday evening in Rochester.

Police identify the man as 27-year old Ramon Gonzalez, who was visiting with family in Gates.

Gonzalez is better known to reggaeton fans as "Jadiel el Tsunami."

Rochester Police say Gonzalez was on 104 east, approaching the Veterans Memorial Bridge just after four o'clock, when he apparently lost control and crossed the median at Maplewood Park into the path of an oncoming car.

Two people in that car suffered minor injuries.

Westbound 104 was closed for nearly four hours for the crash investigation.
