An Ohio woman has died from injuries she suffered Saturday in a motorcycle accident on Interstate 29 near Elk Point.
The South Dakota highway Patrol says 49 year old Carolee Weaver of Luckey, Ohio died when the motorcycle she was riding struck debris while headed northbound on I-29.
The patrol says she was riding in a staggered formation of four motorcycles. The lead rider, 52 year old Brent A. Weaver, also of Luckey, saw a tire and wheel in the driving lane at the crest of a hill.
His motorcycle hit the tire and went down. The collision knocked the tire into the path of Carolee Weaver’s motorcycle, which struck it. Both riders were thrown from their motorcycles.
Carolee Weaver was pronounced dead at the scene. Brent Weaver was taken to a Sioux City hospital with serious injuries. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.
The accident remains under investigation.
