One of the victims of a two-motorcycle crash on Saturday has died from injuries sustained in the crash, according to the State Highway Patrol.

June Rae Murray, 51, of Virginia Beach, Va., died overnight Sunday at Grant Medical Center in Columbus after being ejected from her motorcycle Saturday on Route 33 near the Wayne National Forest Headquarters, according to Sgt. Thomas Holbrook of the OSP Athens post.

On Saturday around 9:30 a.m., Murray and Raymond Flynn were traveling westbound on Route 33 with a group of motorcycles, a media release stated.

Flynn, 48, had a passenger on his motorcycle, Erika Flynn, also 48.

Murray's motorcycle struck the other motorcycle from behind while both were traveling at about 45 mph, according to the OSP report. Neither driver were wearing helmets and all three were ejected. Erika Flynn was wearing a helmet but still sustained injuries.

All three were transported to O'Bleness Memorial Hospital, then transferred by MedFlight helicopter to Grant Medical Center.

Murray suffered head injuries and the Flynns were listed as having incapacitating injuries. Holbrook said they are in stable condition as of Monday.

Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash, according to the report.
