HURRICANE – A 51-year-old woman who was involved in a motorcycle accident in Hurricane on Oct. 15 died as a result of her injuries, authorities confirmed Wednesday.
Cynthia Greco (see ed. note) was riding as a passenger on the back of a 2005 Harley Davidson on Oct. 15. As she and the driver of the motorcycle approached the intersection of 5300 West and State Street in Hurricane, the traffic light turned red. The two were following behind a Hyundai Sonata, and as the driver of the Sonata slowed and stopped at the light, the driver of the motorcycle hit his brakes hard enough to skid, which caused the motorcycle to fall onto its side, Hurricane Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said at the time of the accident. White was ejected from the bike. Both she and the driver of the motorcycle were wearing helmets at the time of the accident.
White was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center but later died as a result of her injuries. Her body was transported to Salt Lake City for memorial services, a friend of White’s family told St. George News.
“Our deepest sympathy goes to the family as they work through this very difficult time of losing a loved one,” Buell said Wednesday in an email to St. George News.
Ed. note: The name “Cynthia White,” listed in the official police statement as a name used by the deceased, has been removed at the request of Greco’s family.
