A 64-year-old woman died Tuesday while riding on a motorcycle that crashed in Northwest Arkansas, authorities said.
It happened about 3:15 p.m. on U.S. 62 in Eureka Springs, according to an Arkansas State Police preliminary report.
Troopers wrote that 73-year-old Steve Murfin was riding a 2015 Harley-Davidson west on the highway when he lost control in a curve. The Galesburg resident veered off the road and hit an embankment, police said.
Murfin was hurt in the wreck, and a passenger, identified as Kathy Murfin of Galesburg, suffered fatal injuries, the report states.
Conditions were described as clear and dry at the time of the wreck.
At least 337 people have died in crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
