A motorcyclist died after allegedly trying to race the car next to him in West Hollywood Los Angeles late Saturday night.

Witnesses said the motorcyclist tried to race the Lamborghini next to him near the Beverly Center just before midnight Saturday, KTLA reports. When the driver of the sports car refused, the motorcyclist allegedly took off and slammed into the back of a BMW near the corner of La Cienega Boulevard and Waring Avenue, ejecting from his bike and suffering fatal injuries.

Paramedics rushed the motorcyclist to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No one else was injured in the incident. Police said everyone involved stayed after the incident, and no charges were being filed.
