The Nevada Highway Patrol says a woman was killed late Thursday night when a wrong-way driver slammed into her motorcycle.

Just after 11 p.m., troopers say an 85-year-old man from San Francisco was driving south in the northbound lanes of U.S. 395, and his sedan collided with a 49-year-old woman riding her motorcycle north.

The woman died at the scene, and the man was taken to the hospital for his injuries. Troopers say the man was not drinking, and they're looking into the possibility that he has a medical condition.
