A driver who allegedly killed a motorcyclist in a Reseda collision has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Roberto Casillas, 56, was arrested after the crash Monday that killed 25-year-old Steve Josue Campos, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement.
Casillas was driving a pickup truck east on Vanowen Street towards Etiwanda Avenue about 3:20 p.m. while Campos was heading west on Vanowen.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Casillas was arrested after being treated for minor injuries. He was booked into Van Nuys jail and was being held on $1-million bail.
