A motorcyclist was killed after crashing into a turning SUV in Maple Grove Tuesday evening.

The crash was reported at 8:17 p.m. when an SUV turning onto eastbound Bass Lake Road from Jewel Lane was hit by a motorcycle westbound on Bass Lake Road.

The bike was "traveling at a high rate of speed," Maple Grove PD said.
