A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a two-vehicle collision on Farwell Road near U.S. Highway 395 north of Spokane.

The motorcyclist was airlifted to a local hospital with “serious, possibly life-threatening injuries” said Deputy Mark Gregory, spokesman for the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. The driver of the other vehicle was transported by ambulance to a hospital.

Gregory said the motorcycle slammed into the back of a Ford Mustang while heading east on Farwell around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning. Witnesses told deputies that the motorcycle was “driving recklessly at a high rate of speed,” when the Mustang turned to merge onto Farwell after heading north on Highway 395.

Deputies did not know Tuesday morning whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
