TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police say a woman has died of her injuries in a motorcycle accident in Tucson.

Tucson police say 59-year-old Juanita Garcia was a passenger on the motorcycle that collided with a truck on South Nogales Highway around 7 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Garcia and a man who was driving the motorcycle both were found injured and lying in the roadway when officers arrived on the scene.

Both were transported to a hospital where Garcia was later pronounced dead.

The man suffered serious injuries, but his name hasn’t been released.
