Investigators say Carver was traveling at a very high rate of speed when he went through a red light, hit a car and then the car hit an SUV.

Carver was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene from multiple blunt trauma injuries, according to the coroner.

One other person was taken to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries, according to investigators.

This happened around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Water Street and South Second Street.
