PEKIN, Ill -- A North Pekin woman is dead following a motorcycle crash Friday afternoon. It happened near the intersection of California Road and Route 98.

The Tazewell County Sheriff's Office says two motorcycles were following a farm tractor while a vehicle from behind didn't slow down.
That's when the vehicle hit both motorcycles.

56-year-old Donna Burroughs, the driver of one of the motorcycles, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A male driver of the second motorcycle along with the driver of the car were both treated and released.

The Tazewell County Sheriff's and Coroner's Office are investigating the incident.
