VANCOUVER, Wash. (KPTV) - A motorcyclist was killed in a crash with a pickup truck in Vancouver early Thursday morning.

The crash happened just before 7 a.m. in the 10400 block of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard. Police say the investigation indicates that an eastbound Ford F-150 was making a left turn into a parking lot when a westbound motorcyclist hit the front passenger side of the truck.
