POLK COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A motorcyclist was hit by a stolen car and killed on Highway 22 and the car was later found on fire, according to police, and now investigators are trying to locate a person of interest in the case. 

Emergency crews responded to the highway near Milepost 14 at 6:30 a.m. Friday.

A motorcyclist was hit by a car and died. A short time later, police learned a car was burning nearby on Ford Street in Rickreall.
