A motorcycle accident in Reno County claimed one life Sunday night.
According to a Facebook post from Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson, just after 6 p.m., deputies and emergeny service personnel were dispatched to Arlington Road and Fairview Road on the report of a single motorcycle accident. When they got there, they found that 24-year-old Jesse Suppes of Buhler had lost control of the motorcycle he was operating and went off the roadway. Suppes was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident is still under investigation, but speed and an unfamiliarity with curves in the area appear to be contributing factors.
Suppes was not wearing a helmet.
This is the second fatal motorcycle accident in Reno County in the last 2 weeks.
