DEPEW, N.Y (WKBW) - A motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Depew early Friday evening.

21-year-old Eric Fontaine was killed just before 5 p.m. on Transit Road near Lee Street. Police say Fontaine was speeding down Transit when he hit a vehicle exiting the U-Haul Lot.

A witness, who didn't want to be identified, told Eyewitness News he saw the victim weave his motorcycle into the center lane and accelerate to get through traffic.

"He hit the center lane on Transit Road," said the witness. "Instead of going the normal speed, he decided to go 90 miles per hour, maybe more, maybe about 100 miles per hour, and a Chrysler 300 was pulling out a U-Haul. An older guy, about 75-year-old was pulling out a U-Haul, and the bike smashed right into him."

The driver of the vehicle has not been identified. So far, no charges have been filed.
