NEMO, S.D.–A Scottsdale, Arizona woman has been identified as the person who died from injuries sustained in a single motorcycle crash last week, 3 miles northwest of Nemo, South Dakota.

Preliminary crash information indicates a 1998 Harley Davidson was traveling northbound on Nemo Road and attempted to pass a road grader in a no passing zone. A car came around the corner from the opposite direction.

The driver of the motorcycle lost control and came to a final rest behind the road grader along the right shoulder of the road. She became separated from the motorcycle and received life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Harley Davidson, 59 year-old Susanne Uhrig, was life-flighted to Rapid City Monument Health Hospital. She passed away from injuries sustained in the crash.
