A motorcyclist was speeding early Thursday morning on Milwaukie Avenue when he lost control, hit a car and crashed into a building. The rider died at the scene.
It happened south of McLoughlin Bouelvard. An autopsy will determine whether he was impaired at the time of the crash. His name will be released after relatives are notified. This is the fourth fatal crash in Portland in the last week...and the 23rd traffic fatality this year.
