A woman from Peoria is dead after a motorcycle crash in Marshall County.

According to deputies, Kevin Sibling of Peoria was on Route 26 Tuesday afternoon south of Lacon when he swerved to avoid a car driven by David Dunn of Lacon.  When Sibling swerved, a woman riding with him was thrown off the bike.  She was flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria where she died.  Her name isn’t being released.  Sibling was also taken to Peoria but was treated and released.

Dunn told police he went into Sibling’s lane of traffic to avoid hitting a deer.  He was ticketed for improper lane use.  Dunn wasn’t hurt.
