Authorities Sunday identified a 37-year-old woman from Norco who was killed after she was ejected from a motorcycle in Riverside.

The crash was reported around 3 a.m. Saturday. Several callers reported the driver of the motorcycle and a passenger with major injuries.

Authorities said a 2020 Buell motorcycle being driven by a 41-year-old Norco resident, with a female passenger later identified as Lynn Andrews, was traveling at a high speed eastbound on Arlington Avenue near Fairhaven Drive when the motorist failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway and stuck the south curb.

Both riders were ejected. The driver suffered major injuries to the lower extremities and was rushed to a hospital. Andrews was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver’s identity was not released.

Riverside Police Department officials said they believed drugs and/or alcohol were contributing factors to the crash.
