RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Reno Police are investigating a crash that sent two people to the hospital Monday night. It happened around 7:52 p.m. on 4th Street directly in front of El Tavern Motel.

Investigators say a white Chevy truck was attempting to make a u-turn on 4th Street when a motorcycle struck the back of the pickup. Witnesses told RPD that the motorcycle was likely traveling around 70-75 mph. The two people on the motorcycle were taken to Renown with multiple broken bones. Police do not suspect impairment, but say that speed was likely a factor. Westbound 4th St. is closed at Cemetery Rd. while one eastbound lane remains open.
