LYMAN, Maine — A Massachusetts woman died Saturday after a motorcycle on which she was riding crashed in Lyman.

According to State Police spokeswoman Shannon Moss, Gerald Gibson, 51, of Sanford was driving the motorcycle, and Anne Stout, 50, of Maynard, Mass., was riding on the back. 

They were headed north on Old North Berwick Road in Lyman when the motorcycle went onto the soft shoulder of the road and crashed into a small ditch around 11:30 a.m. Moss said neither were wearing helmets.

Stout was ejected from the motorcycle and died as a result of her injuries, Moss said, and Gibson was taken to Maine Medical Center with minor injuries.
