Fatal Montrose M/C Crash 15 Aug 14

A 17-year-old female is facing possible charges after a head-on crash in Montrose Thursday morning.

Wright County Sheriff Joe Hagerty reports that just after 9:30, the Wright County Dispatch Center received a 911 call reporting a car vs. motorcycle accident on Hwy 12 in the City of Montrose. Upon arrival, deputies found that a 2001 Chevy Impala had collided with a 2003 Suzuki Road Sport motorcycle. The 17-year-old female was the lone occupant of the Impala and suffered no apparent injury.

The lone occupant of the motorcycle died at the scene, whose name has not been released, pending notification of family.

The State Patrol says the female crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, and because she is facing possible charges, her name is not being released at this time.
