A woman killed Sunday in a two-motorcycle accident has been identified as a 26-year-old resident of Des Moines. She was riding as a passenger on the motorcycle with her 35-year-old husband when the crash occurred.
The couple smashed into the back of a 55-year-old Altoona man’s motorcycle near the 400 block of East 30th Street around 6:30 p.m. The 55-year-old man sustained minor injuries while the woman was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene.
