ARDEN HILLS, Minn. (AP) — A North Dakota woman has died after a rush-hour motorcycle crash on Interstate 694 in the Twin Cities area.

The State Patrol says a vehicle was eastbound on I-694 in Arden Hills around 6 p.m. Friday when the driver lost control as he approached stopped traffic at Hamline Avenue.

The motorcycle passenger, 27-year-old Jennifer Verlinde, of Fargo, was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis critical condition. The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said Sunday that she died at the hospital early Saturday.

Her driver, 26-year-old Lucas Anderson, of Fargo, was taken to HCMC with non-life threatening injuries.

The patrol says alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
