Police officials in Irvington Township are looking into possible speeding as the cause of a crash that injured a motorcyclist Sunday night. 

Township officials said Irvington Police were notified of a  motorcycle crash on Lyons Avenue near Lincoln Place around 9:15 p.m. 

Emergency responders arrived and found a damaged motorcycle with the rider underneath a vehicle at that location.
