US news reporter Jenny Lenzini has died after a motorbike she was riding on crashed into a tree. She was 26-years-old.
According to NBC2 where she worked, she was riding on the back of a motorcycle when the driver lost control of the bike and hit a tree on Saturday.
The driver died at the scene while Jenny was flown to a Sarasota hospital where she later passed away from her injuries.
Jenny started her career at KTIV in Iowa as a producer before securing positions as multi-media journalist and weekend anchor.
Since her move to Waterman Broadcasting, Jenny covered stories that “mattered most” to the community in Charlotte County and Lee County.
The outlet revealed she was “always diligent” in her work and “made sure you knew how grateful and thankful she was” to be reporting in Southwest Florida.
“She idolized Diane Sawyer growing up and loved being around people,” WBBH-TV reported.
