The snake-curve exit at 580 and Fairview snags another motorist Saturday afternoon

Motorcycle rider exits northbound 580 at Fairview – loses control on exit curves and crashes his cycle and slides off the pavement.

Paramedics prepare the cycle rider for a quick trip to Renown in Reno

Victim was talking as rescuers loaded him aboard a Care Flight chopper bound for Reno.

Care Flight and patient headed for Renown in Reno.

Carson City Deputy Sheriff inspects the motorcycle before it’s hauled away.

The motorcyclist was northbound on I-580 when the rider decided to exit the highway at Fairview Drive. From reading the skid marks and disturbed dirt the motorcyclist fell victim to the same problem that auto drivers and motorcycle riders have faced in the past as they try to navigate this particular exit ramp. The ramp gives a straight-ahead exit but it quickly bends to the right which can demand a sharp maneuver to the right – and at 45 to 55 mph there is little room for error as a number of drivers and riders have experienced. After the first bend in the exit ramp it bends back to the north causing another quick maneuver which has caused vehicles to take out exit street lamps and road signs on the right side of the exit ramp.

To be continued as more information is released.
