By , Columbian staff writer

A 38-year-old man died Friday at a hospital after a high-speed collision between his motorcycle and a Ford Escort in east Vancouver.

Vancouver police responded at 5:09 p.m. to the 2000 block of Northeast 112th Avenue for a report of a motorcycle versus vehicle crash. Witnesses reported seeing the motorcycle speeding and weaving through traffic before hitting the Ford from behind, according to a Monday police news release.

The motorcyclist was taken with life-threatening injuries to the hospital, where he later died. Authorities did not identify the man Monday.

The driver of the Ford, a 26-year-old woman, was uninjured.

The motorcyclist’s speed and impairment were “predominant factors” in the crash, according to the police news release.

The Vancouver Police Department Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation.
