Nina Fonger, 45 of Rush Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada, was killed yesterday morning in a motorcycle accident about 8 miles west of Burgess Junction on US14A. Fonger was eastbound on US14A on a motorcycle. She was following two other motorcycles, one operated by her husband. Deer began crossing the road, and the two drivers alerted her via hand signals. She applied her brakes, but the rear wheel locked up, causing her to lose control.
The vehicle overturned onto its right side, sliding into the westbound lane. Another vehicle, driven by Louis Lefebvre of New Maryland, New Brunswick, Canada, was westbound pulling a camper trailer. Lefebvre saw the motorcycle coming into this lane and attempted to brake. Fonger and her motorcycle struck the driver's side front tire and running boards of the other vehicle. Fonger was separated from the motorcycle and both came to rest in the eastbound lane. She died Wednesday afternoon. The crash closed US14A for two hours.
