GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Cascade County officials have released the name of a 47-year-old Great Falls woman who died in a weekend motorcycle crash southeast of the city.

Sheriff and Coroner Bob Edwards says Dixie Housel died in the crash Saturday night on Stockett Road. Her 22-year-old female passenger was injured.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the women were northbound when they failed to negotiate a left-hand turn. The motorcycle traveled straight for about 200 feet after leaving the roadway before both women were thrown off the bike. Neither was wearing a helmet. Housel died at the scene.
