The woman who died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident this week in Cowley County was identified Thursday by authorities as Madicyn M. Hill, 18, of Arkansas City.

Keaton N. Barclay, 21, also of Arkansas City, was injured in the Wednesday morning accident and taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis, Cowley County Sheriff Don Read said.

Barclay wasn’t a patient at the hospital Thursday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The accident happened on U.S. 77 just north of Arkansas City’s city limits. The scene was discovered shortly after 4:30 a.m. by a sheriff’s deputy, Read said.

The motorcycle was northbound when the driver failed to negotiate a curve, resulting in the motorcycle flipping at least once. Hill was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Read said.
