HANKINSON, N.D. — A man and woman on a motorcycle were killed near here when a pickup ran into them from behind while they were slowing to turn onto another road the night of Saturday, May 28.

Corey Volesky, 45, and passenger Amber Krause Volesky, 40, both from Wyndmere, died on scene after their Harley-Davidson motorcycle was struck from behind by a Toyota Tundra pickup truck.

The motorcycle was traveling westbound on Highway 11 near mile marker 159 about six miles west of Hankinson and six miles east of Lidgerwood when around 11 p.m. it slowed to turn onto Richland County Road 3. A trailing westbound pickup, driven by 41-year-old Roberto Corona Eguiza of Veblen, S.D., ran into the motorcycle from behind. Neither motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, according to the highway patrol.

The pickup driver fled the scene on foot and was later found and arrested for leaving the scene of a fatality crash, according to the highway patrol.

Agencies assisting North Dakota Highway Patrol at the scene included the Richland County Sheriff's Department, Hankinson Fire, Lidgerwood Fire, Hankinson Ambulance, Lidgerwood Ambulance and Sanford AirMed.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
