— A 42-year-old woman died and her 49-year-old husband was uninjured in a motorcycle crash Sunday night after celebrating her birthday at a friend's house.

Speed was a factor in the crash that killed Cheryl Ann Pickron, authorities said. Neither she nor her husband, Michael Gordon Pickron, were wearing a helmet when they crashed at 7712 Trudy Lane, troopers said.

Cheryl Ann Pickron was driving the motorcycle with a suspended license, officials said. She drove off the right side of the road, hit a mailbox and then a culvert, authorities said. She died at the scene.
