RENO, NV - A moped rider was taken to a hospital Thursday morning after a crash on South Virginia Street at St. Lawrence, south of downtown. Police say no other vehicles were involved.
The rider of the moped apparently wasn't wearing a helmet and has a head injury, but was awake and alert when police got to the scene. The rider has been taken away by REMSA. We have no word yet on how serious the injuries are.
Police say it looks like the rider braked suddenly for traffic and was thrown from his moped.
