Motorcyclist in fatal crash identified

A motorcyclist killed Thursday in an accident on south Highway 395 in Douglas County has been identified as David Bovino, 23, of Carson City.

According to Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen, Bovino was southbound in the left turn lane when he slammed into the rear of a Nissan pickup driven by Jerry Grist, 40, also of Carson City.

"It is unclear why the rider of the motorcycle failed to observe the pickup stopped in the left turn lane," said Allen.

Bovino was taken from the scene by ambulance to a nearby fire station where Care Flight was waiting, but died before being airlifted.

Grist was not injured.

Witnesses or anyone with additional information should contact Trooper Mike Stapledon at 775-688-2500, ext. 4.
