BILLINGS- A motorcycle rider was transported to a Billings hospital Thursday afternoon after a collision with a vehicle.

The crash occurred in the Heights near the intersection of Yellowstone River Road and Bitterroot Drive around 4:30 p.m.

The motorcycle rider, a man in his 30s, was exiting Cherry Creek heading west, ignored traffic signals and struck a GMC Acadia van that was heading east on Yellowstone River Road, Billings Police Officer Aaron Edwards said.

Speed was a factor, Edwards said. The injuries were non-life-threatening.
