Fatal Crash in Cattaraugus County

A 43-year-old Machias woman is dead after a motorcycle crash at about 7 o’clock Sunday night on McKinstry Road in the Town of Machias.

State troopers say the driver failed to negotiate a curve, went off the road and onto loose gravel where the bike went out of control, throwing off the driver and a passenger.

Police have not identified the woman yet. A 49-year-old Machias man was taken to ECMC by Mercy Flight and remains in critical condition.

The state police crash reconstruction unit is still investigating.
