(KAIR)--An Atchison man was involved in a two-vehicle northwest Missouri crash Friday evening that claimed the life of motorcyclist.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 27-year-old Robert West was not hurt in the crash on U.S. 169 about four miles north of St. Joseph.

Killed in the crash was 34-year-old Nathaniel Kuster, of Union Star, Missouri.

According to the Patrol report, Kuster was northbound when his motorcycle crossed the center of the roadway after cresting a hill. West swerved in an attempt to avoid the collision, but Kuster struck the front driver corner of his southbound pickup truck.

Kuster, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from his motorcycle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash was reported shortly after 8:30 Friday evening.
