Dawn Marlatt, a fifty-nine-year-old woman, died Saturday morning after being ejected from her motorcycle. Dawn was riding with William Marlatt, a man thought to be her husband, when the motorcycle they were riding rear-ended another motorcycle on the U.S. 60 near Wickenburg. According to an Arizona Department of Public Safety official, the motorcycle the Marlatts rear-ended had slowed for an approaching ambulance in “emergency status.” It is unknown how fast the Marlatts were driving at the time of the accident, but neither of them was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. Mr. Marlatt was taken to the hospital to be treated for serious injuries, but Ms. Marlatt was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other motorcycle refused treatment.
