A reporter who worked for two television stations in Southwest Florida died after the motorcycle she was a passenger on crashed into a tree this weekend.
Waterman Broadcasting said that 26-year-old Jenny Lenzini, who worked for both stations owned by the company including NBC affiliate WBBH-TV, was involved in the crash Saturday afternoon in North Port.
Lenzini was a passenger when the driver lost control and struck the tree. The driver died at the scene while Lenzini was airlifted to a hospital in Sarasota, where she later died.
The suburban Chicago native started at the company in July after working in Iowa. She covered both Charlotte and Lee counties after moving to Florida.
