THE BUENA VISTA COUNTY SHERIFF SAYS THE PICK-UP HAD TURNED SOUTH ON TO COUNTY ROAD M-31 MONDAY EVENING WHEN A NORTHBOUND MOTORCYCLE STRUCK THE AMMONIA TANK BEING TOWED.

THE COLLISION KNOCKED THE DRIVER, 29-YEAR-OLD LIEN TEJEDA LORES, OFF OF HIS CYCLE AND INTO A DITCH.
THE PICK-UP DRIVER WAS NOT INJURED.
