A Saturday afternoon crash in Lawrence County claimed the life of a Paragould woman.

Cynthia Robertson, 48, was riding with her husband, Michael Robertson, 43, heading south on U.S. Highway 63 on a 2017 Aprilia RSV4 motorcycle, when the crash occurred at 2:45 p.m.

Michael Robertson was injured in the crash and transported to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn., according to Arkansas State Police.

The preliminary crash summary, filed by Arkansas State Police, states that the motorcycle was traveling in the inside lane of the highway when a 2014 Toyota RAV, also traveling south, but in the outside lane, attempted to make a U-turn in front of the motorcycle.

The front of the motorcycle collided with the left front of the Toyota.

Weather conditions were clear and road conditions were dry at the time of the crash.
