A motorcyclist was killed last night in West Baltimore when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a car and two children before he slammed into a tree, police said.

Police did not release the name of the victim, but said that the man was operating a Honda motorcycle at high speed about 6: 45 p.m in the 2100 block of W. Lexington St. when he hit a 1997 Kia that was traveling west on Lexington.

The motorcycle bounced off the car and onto the sidewalk, where it struck two boys, 6 and 7, and then crashed into a tree, police said.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. They would not release the identities of the two boys, who were in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
