A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a Hillsboro School District school bus, reported Oregon Live News.

The 23-year-old motorcyclist, identified as Cordell Dylan Tate, was reportedly traveling west on East Main Street in the town west of downtown Portland, when he collided with the side of the bus as it turned onto Main from Northeast 55 Ave on June 14.

Officer Jim Ruiz said via the article that the incident occurred at approximately 3:45 p.m., and it is believed the motorcyclist’s speed was a factor in the crash.
