A motorcyclist was killed Thursday in a high-speed collision in Lakewood.

The crash was reported about 2:05 p.m. at the intersection of Paramount and Del Amo boulevards, according to Sgt. Steve Moses of the Lakewood sheriff’s station.

A car was southbound on Paramount Boulevard, making a left turn, when it was struck by a northbound motorcycle traveling at speeds topping 80 mph, Moses said.

The motorcyclist, a 23-year-old Lakewood man whose name was not immediately released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car suffered minor injuries. She was taken to a hospital to be checked out, Moses said.

“Obviously speed was a factor,” the sergeant said.

The intersection was closed while authorities investigated the crash.
