WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A woman was killed and a man was injured Saturday afternoon after a motorcycle crash in Ogden Canyon.

Authorities identified the deceased Sunday as 64-year-old Jennifer Flinders, who is from the Salt Lake Valley and recently moved to the Ogden area.

Sgt. Matt Jansen, Weber County Sheriff’s Office, said the crash was first reported at 1:45 p.m. Saturday and occurred in Ogden Canyon.

A 58-year-old man was driving a motorcycle as Flinders rode on the back. The driver lost control for an unknown reason, and both occupants were thrown from the motorcycle.

Neither individual was wearing a helmet. Flinders suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The male was taken to a local hospital via ground ambulance and is listed as being in stable condition.

Jansen said alcohol or drugs may have been a factor in the crash.
