The authorities said that the two cars were racing when one hit the motorcyclist head-on. The motorcyclist, who the authorities did not release his name, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the motorcyclist has been questioned by the authorities. The second driver reportedly fled the scene after the accident.

Street racing has been popular around the country. It has become even more popular since Street Outlaws became a hit on The Discovery Channel.

At first, Street Outlaws were racing on roads that were not blocked off. Now, The Discovery Channel gets permits for the show to block off roads for the drivers to race to allow it to become more safer.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 50% of speeding passenger vehicle drivers involved in fatal crashes in 2016 were unrestrained at the time of the crash. 32% percent of male drivers 15-20 years-old were speeding in fatal crashes in 2016.

We do not know if the driver of the vehicle that collided with the motorcyclist was a male.
