A 62-year-old woman from Delton died this morning while learning to ride a motorcycle.

Family members told police that she was a novice, but learning to ride so that she could join her husband on motorcycle trips.

The crash occurred on family property in the 11000 block of Gurd Rd.

Barry Township Police Chief Mark Doster said the woman lost control of the bike after hitting a dip in the ground. She was thrown from the motorcycle and suffered head injuries that caused her death.

Investigators said the motorcycle hit a tree but it is unclear if she was thrown from the bike before or after it hit the tree.
