Lakewood motorcyclist killed in hit-and-run on I-5

A Lakewood man was killed in a hit-and-run early Saturday morning, and Washington State Patrol troopers are asking anyone who saw the crash to call them.

Vincent G. Heppell, 55, was riding his 2008 Suzuki motorcycle north on Interstate 5 near the Berkeley Avenue exit when he was hit around 3:20 a.m., according to reports.

The car that hit Heppell was speeding and drifted from its lane, striking the motorcyclist.

Troopers believe the car was black, but don’t have information about its make or model. The car would have damage to its front from the collision.

Anyone with information is asked to call 253-538-3176.
