Deputies say Larry Wayne Conley, 27, of Sissonville was operating a "mini-bike" with Brittany Rendone, 20, as his passenger.
Witnesses tell deputies that Conley was driving fast and on the wrong side of the road. The "mini-bike" then hit a Ford F-250 pickup driven by Charles F. Summers Jr., 50, of Sissonville, head on.
