An excerpt:

Traffic investigators believe the Kawasaki was traveling southbound on Jackson Street at a high rate of speed approaching Keith Avenue.

The Toyota was stopped at the stop sign facing westbound on Keith Avenue at Jackson Street. The Kawasaki did not have a stop sign.

“As the Toyota attempted to cross Jackson Street, the Kawasaki could not stop and struck the passenger side of the Toyota,” Florip said.

The motorcyclist did not have a stop sign but investigators believe that the speed of the Kawasaki was the main contributor to the crash, Florip said.
