72-year-old Linda Joyce Brandstrom of Madison was killed in a motorcycle accident Saturday afternoon in Lac qui Parle County. Brandstrom was a passenger on a 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by 66-year-old Steven Harvey Dunkley of Madison.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the motorcycle was southbound on Highway 119 near 340th street when Dunkley lost control and crashed on the roadway. The MSP report indicates that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Neither Brandstrom nor Dunkley were wearing helmets, and road conditions were wet at the time of the incident.
Dunkley was transported to St. Cloud Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
