A few hours later, and only 2 miles from the first fatal motorcycle, on I84 at milepost 43, an 18-year-old male was also riding a Kawasaki motorcycle at a high rate of speed. The teen rear-ended a Toyota Camry going in the same direction. The driver of the motorcycle was wearing a helmet and was not killed in the accident. He was transported to a nearby hospital.
