New York State Police say Alain Legault, 51, of Mercier, Quebec, lost control of his motorcycle when going through a curve in the road at the intersection with New Road. A motorcycle operated by Antonio Triassi, 49, of Montreal, Quebec, hit Legault's motorcycle after trying to avoid crashing.
Police say both motorcycles had passengers and were ejected. All four riders were transported to Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone. Legault's passenger Barbara Hameline, 45, of Mercier, was pronounced dead at the hospital. Triassi's passenger Lia Gentile, 39, of Montreal, was airlifted to Fletcher Allen where she is currently listed in serious condition.
Both male operators were treated with minor injuries and released.
An autopsy is scheduled for Hamelin on Monday.
The crash is still under investigation.
