A 22-year-old Vancouver motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries Saturday night after colliding with an SUV, according to Vancouver police.

At about 9 p.m., police responded to a crash involving a Dodge Nitro and a Yamaha motorcycle in the 3200 block of Northwest Lower River Road. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash, but said that it appears alcohol and speed were factors.

The SUV driver was a 15-year-old girl, and the passenger was a 55-year-old man, both Ridgefield residents. Police did not release their names, nor the name of the injured 22-year-old motorcyclist.
