Authorities said Marlon Retana was riding the wrong way on Lake Forest Drive about 8:15 p.m. Thursday when he was hit by a Corvette entering the northbound freeway onramp.

He died at Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viejo.

The driver of the Corvette was not cited, a spokeswoman for the California Highway Patrol said, though the crash is under investigation.
