Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in a Sunday motorcycle crash that injured two Illinois residents, one of them fatally, in southwest Wisconsin.
The male operator of the motorcycle lost control around a curve and crashed into a ditch in Trevor, Wisconsin, ejecting him and his passenger, the Kenosha County sheriff’s department said in a statement.
Paramedics responded about 8 p.m. in the 26800 block of Camp Lake Road, and took them to hospitals, the sheriff’s office said.
The passenger, 42-year-old Marnie J. Cogswell, was pronounced dead, the sheriff’s office said. She lived in Spring Grove. The 43-year-old male driver was seriously hurt.
The sheriff’s office said alcohol was a factor in the crash. No charges have been filed.
The sheriff’s office and Kenosha County medical examiner’s office have not released the woman’s name or hometown.
