WEST HILLS (CBSLA) — A motorcyclist that was being followed by the LAPD is dead after crashing at high speed into a car in West Hills at around 1:15 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.

Video from SKY9 showed the driver speeding down Roscoe Boulevard, and later reports revealed that the suspect was traveling of speeds up to 130 miles per hour. At one point the rider could be seen standing up on the motorcycle, just moments before crashing into a vehicle making a left turn at Fallbrook Avenue.

The motorcyclist was thrown into the air upon impact and was declared dead on the scene, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“It’s a very sad day here. Just another example of how reckless driving – regardless of who it is – causes death,” said LAPD Captain Andy Neiman.

Two others were also injured in the crash. They are reported to be in stable condition, claiming feelings of soreness and pain.
