A 40-year-old man continued to fight for his life Monday, the day after he slammed his motorcycle into the back of an SUV on Interstate 80.

Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said the man was believed to have been traveling at 95 to 100 mph when he collided with the SUV about 4 p.m. Sunday on eastbound I-80 near 500 East in Salt Lake City.
