RENO, Nev. - Kevin J. Ness, brother of Arlen Ness, has died from injuries sustained in a July 30 chain-reaction crash on Interstate 80 near Reno, Nev. He was 59.

According to police reports, the driver of a Toyota Camry failed to notice slowing traffic ahead of him on the interstate and swerved to avoid colliding with another vehicle in front of him. But he then collided with a PT Cruiser driven in the next lane and bounced into another lane where Ness was riding his 2008 Victory Vision. Ness was thrown off the bike, police stated.

Ness was a resident of Oakland, Calif.
