A Fork Mountain woman died from injuries she sustained in a motorcycle crash on U.S. 220 in Boones Mill early Monday morning.

Bernita Marieta Neiers, 60, was traveling north on 220 on a 2003 Harley Davidson when she changed lanes and lost control of the bike, according to Senior Trooper J.T. Haynes with the Virginia State Police. She was thrown from the motorcycle.

Neiers was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial with life-threatening injuries, Haynes said.

The crash occurred about 5:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of U.S. 220, about two-tenths of a mile south of Whispering Creek Road.
