One woman is dead following a motorcycle-pick-up truck collision on Bloomington's east side. The McLean County Coroner's office says the woman, who was wearing a helmet, was operating a motorbike that collided with a pick-up at the intersection of Ireland Grove and Towanda Barnes roads at around 9 0'clock this morning. Bloomington Police and Fire responded, transporting the woman to OSF St. Joseph's Medical Center, where she died a half hour later.

Reports indicate both vehicles were traveling on Ireland Grove, with the motorcycle west-bound and the truck east-bound as they approached Towanda Barnes. The driver of the pick-up was not injured. Coroner Beth Kimmerling says the identity of the victim, from rural McLean County, won't be released until after an autopsy is conducted and family has been notified.
