RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The driver of the vehicle that fled the scene of a motorcycle crash on Wednesday has been arrested.

According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, 21-year-old Nathaniel D. Wall of Reno failed to reduce the speed of the 1996 Dodge pickup he was driving and struck the rear of the motorcycle being driven by Reno Police Officer Guy Cooper. Cooper, a 17-year RPD veteran, sustained moderate injuries in the event, while Wall fled the scene. The damaged pickup was found abandoned in Sparks on Wednesday afternoon.

The crash occurred at approximately 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Cooper was riding his agency-issued BMW motorcycle eastbound on I-80 near the Virginia Street interchange and had slowed for congested traffic when Wall allegedly made contact.

Law enforcement personnel from the Nevada Highway Patrol, Sparks Police Department, Nevada Division of Parole and Probation, and the FBI collaborated and located Wall at a motel in Reno. He was placed under arrest on Friday, and charged with several offenses, including Leaving the Scene of an Injury Accident, a felony.

Hall is in custody at the Washoe County Detention Facility, with a total bail amount of $24,025.

Officer Cooper was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for his injuries. He was released from the hospital Wednesday evening. No other vehicles were involved in the event.

This is amazing. Start working at home with Google. It’s a great work at home opportunity. Just work for few hours. I earn up to $100 a day. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out
