— A 41-year-old Janesville woman has died from injuries she suffered in a March 20 motorcycle crash.

Sheri L. DeWitt died Sunday at Agrace HospiceCare, Fitchburg.


She was riding on the back of a motorcycle driven by Douglas E. Boughton, 63, Janesville, and was seriously injured after he lost control at a curve in Hillside Road in Albion Township, according to a news release from the Dane County Sheriff's Office.


Neither was wearing helmets, the release said.


Boughton remains hospitalized with serious injuries, and the crash is still under investigation, said Elise Schaffer, public information officer for the Dane County Sheriff's Office.
