A Canadian woman died Sunday in a motorcycle crash on North Dakota Highway 256 in Bottineau County.
Two motorcycles were northbound on Highway 256 en route from Bottineau to the Sherwood Port of Entry to enter Canada, about a half mile south of Antler, according to a report from North Dakota Highway Patrol.
Judith L. Brown, 64, of Macoun, Sask., was driving a 2015 Indian motorcycle, and Anamarie K. Gordon, 47, of Minnedosa, Man., was driving a 2013 Harley Davidson.
According to Highway Patrol, both motorcycles were slowing down to make a left-hand turn, when, for some reason Brown's motorcycle struck the rear of Gordon's motorcycle.
Both vehicles overturned on the roadway, and Brown's motorcycle came to rest on its left side in the east ditch, facing south. Gordon's motorcycle came to rest on its right side on the roadway along the right-hand fog line, facing north.
Brown and Gordon were both transported to Trinity Health in Minot, where Brown was pronounced dead. Both were wearing helmets.
The crash remains under investigation.
