Nevada Highway Patrol has arrested a man they say fled the scene of an accident Friday afternoon in Sparks, that left two people riding a motorcycle in the hospital with serious injuries.

  

The accident happened around 1:15 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Pyramid and Tyler Ways.

Troopers say the motorcycle was headed south on Pyramid and crashed into a white pickup truck, driven by 49-year-old Mark Kesner, headed the opposite direction, that was making a  a left-hand turn.

Investigators say Kesner stopped at a nearby gas station and then fled the scene. Troopers later arrested Kesner who was booked into the Washoe County Jail.


Both motorcycle riders were transported to Renown Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
