Just days into the festivities, Ohio Bike Week was marred by tragedy Monday when a Sandusky woman died after her motorcycle struck an SUV that pulled out in front of her on Ohio 101 in Sandusky.
Kristina McGraw, 48, was pronounced dead at Firelands Regional Medical Center shortly after the crash.
McGraw was driving a 2003 Harley-Davidson south on Ohio 101 when at about 6 p.m. a northbound Jeep Cherokee slowed down and turned left onto Superior street, pulling into the motorcycle's path, Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said.
McGraw's motorcycle struck the passenger side of the Jeep, ejecting her off the bike and onto the Jeep's windshield. McGraw was then rushed by ambulance to the hospital, where she soon died.
