CHP makes arrest in Roseville Road motorcycle fatal

Published: Thursday, Jun. 5, 2014 - 1:37 pm

The California Highway Patrol has made an arrest in a hit-and-run crash that killed a motorcyclist more than a month ago on Roseville Road.

Gavril Suiugan, 20, of Fair Oaks, died May 1 when his motorcycle struck the side of a truck that made a left turn in front of him as he was northbound on Roseville Road approaching Outlook Drive about 8:50 p.m.

According to the CHP, a dark metallic blue GMC Sierra truck was southbound on Roseville Road approaching Outlook Drive and turned left directly in the path of the motorcyclist. Suiugan’s black 2005 KMT motorcycle struck the right side of the truck and Suiugan was ejected from the motorcycle. He died at the scene.

At the time, CHP investigators say the truck, described as a late 1990s or early 2000s GMC Sierra, had a camper shell and sustained damage to its right front side.

On Wednesday, officers contacted Nicolas Perez Reza, 20, who they suspect was driving the truck. Reza was arrested him on suspicion of manslaughter, hit and run and driving with a suspended license.
