A husband is in the hospital and his wife is dead after a motorcycle crash last night near the La Salle-DeKalb county line.

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says Jeffery Dorsen of Earlville was northbound on West County Line Road Sunday night when he failed to manage a curve. His Harley Trike ended up overturning in a ditch, throwing him and his 69-year old wife Paula from the trike.

Paula Dorsen also of Earlville was pronounced dead at the scene. Jeffery Dorsen was flown to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Rockford. He was arrested for DUI.

The fatal crash is still under investigation.
