ROY — One person was killed and two people were injured when a motorcycle crashed into two other vehicles on Monday night.

Around 10 p.m., a Roy police officer saw a motorcycle traveling south on 1900 West near 5400 South. The motorcyclist was "driving recklessly and at a high rate of speed," according to Roy police spokesman Stuart Hackworth. The officer, who was traveling north, then turned around to try to initiate a traffic stop.

While looking for the motorcycle, the officer found the motorcyclist had collided with two other vehicles at 6000 South and 1900 West.

The rider, a 25-year-old male, was killed, according to Hackworth, and two occupants from the other vehicles were taken to McKay-Dee Hospital where they were treated and later released.

Police did not identify the motorcyclist on Tuesday, and additional information was not available.

Hackworth said Roy police have asked the Utah Highway Patrol to assist with the investigation.
