A Wood County woman is dead after the motorcycle she was riding struck debris on Interstate 29 in Union County in South Dakota.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol reports the accident happened just before noon on Saturday near Elk Point, according to KDLT News in Sioux Falls, S.D.

The patrol says 49-year-old Carolee Weaver, of Luckey, was riding northbound on I-29.

The patrol said just before noon she was riding in a staggered formation of four motorcycles.

The lead rider, 52-year-old Brent A. Weaver, also of Luckey, was riding at the crest of a hill and saw a tire and wheel in the driving lane.

His motorcycle hit the tire and went down.

The collision knocked the tire into the path of Carolee Weaver's motorcycle, which struck it.

Both riders were thrown from their motorcycles.

Carolee Weaver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Brent Weaver was taken to a Sioux City hospital with serious injuries. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.

No further information was immediately available.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.

Union County Sheriff's Department, Elk Point Police Department, Elk Point Fire Department and Elk Point Ambulance assisted.
