GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – A woman riding as a passenger on a motorcycle died Sunday when a Dodge Charger turned in front of it on State Highway 26 near Kimball Drive, colliding with the bike.

The accident happened at 11:58 a.m., Grapevine Police spokesman Todd Dearing said. The motorcycle was turning left onto Kimball from SH 26 when the collision happened, Dearing said.

The woman was flown to JPS Hospital, where she died. The driver, a man whose name and age was not released, was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in "an unknown condition."

The passengers in the car were taken to area hospitals. Their conditions weren't immediately available. No one has been identified, and Dearing said he did not know if drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.

He also did not know if the motorcycle driver and passenger were wearing helmets. Traffic was diverted through a nearby parking lot, causing afternoon delays.
