Marco Simoncelli Dead

Marco Simoncelli died crash at the Malaysian Moto GP. He lost control of his bike on the second lap of the circuit in Sepang and appeared to be hit by Colin Edwards and then Valentino Rossi as he slid across the track.

Simoncelli, who won the 250cc world championship in 2008, clinching the crown in Sepang, stepped up to MotoGP in 2010. His death was the first fatality in MotoGP since Japan's Daijiro Kato died from his injuries sustained at the 2003 Japanese Grand Prix.

Race organizers said Simoncelli was sent to the medical center at the Sepang circuit for treatment but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

"He was already unconscious when the medical team arrived," said MotoGP medical director Michele Macchiagodena. "We attempted to resuscitate him but failed. He died 45 minutes later."
