EIGHTY-FOUR, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania motorcyclist and his female passenger have been killed in a crash on a rural highway.

The Washington County coroner says 55-year-old James Martin, of Eighty-Four, was killed after he lost control of his cycle about 4:05 p.m. Sunday on Route 136. The crash happened in Somerset Township, not far from Martin’s home.

Martin’s passenger, 54-year-old Dawn Lynne Stonesifer, of Chartiers Township, was also killed.

The cause of the crash was still being investigated Monday, when the coroner also planned autopsies.
