SPRINGFIELD, New Jersey (WPVI) -- Investigators revealed Thursday that a motorcyclist killed earlier this week during a high-speed crash in Burlington County was being followed by New Jersey State Police.
The motorcyclist collided with a Honda SUV just before 5 p.m. Tuesday at Route 206 and Jacksonville-Jobstown Road in Springfield.
Police say the 24-year-old motorcyclist was killed and a 70-year-old woman driving the Honda was treated for minor injuries.

Both were traveling at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.
At some point during the pursuit, a Springfield police officer was following behind the unmarked state police vehicle.
Investigators have not said how the pursuit started.
The name of the motorcyclist has not been released.
