The Reno police department responded to a fatal accident in downtown Reno around 5 p.m. Saturday night.

This is the third fatal motorcycle accident in as many weeks, and police say this too could possibly be related to speed.

Police say a motorcyclist was traveling south on Virginia when another driver going north on Virginia attempted to turn left onto First Street, that's when police say the motorcyclist hit the van.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital, but police say the person died because of the injuries.
