A Reno resident was killed when he was struck by a vehicle Saturday, Sept. 23, at 10:45 a.m.

Jason Fava, 19, was driving his 2006 Yamaha R6 motorcycle northbound on Highway 89 at approximately 45-50 mph.

Lance West, 45, of Fair Oaks was driving his 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 southbound on Highway 89 at approximately 40-45 mph.

As Fava entered a curve, he allowed his motorcycle to drift toward the centerline.

He then saw the pickup approaching from the opposite direction.

Fava hit the brakes, which caused the motorcycle to stand upright and go straight into the opposing lane.

West saw Fava come across the centerline toward him, but he had no time to react.

Fava drove straight into the front of the pickup. He came to rest under it.

Although Fava was wearing a helmet, his injuries were fatal.

Neither Law nor his two passengers were injured. They were wearing their seat belts.
