SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Police have identified the woman who was killed in a motorcycle crash on the U.S. 31 bypass this weekend.

Officers were called just before 2:10 p.m. on Saturday to a single, serious motorcycle crash in the northbound lanes between the Brick Road exit and the Adams Road overpass.

On Sunday, the South Bend Police Department identified her as Bobbie Jo Yocum, 51, of Defiance, Ohio.

As traffic began to back up, a two-vehicle crash occurred approximately a half-mile south of the first crash. While there were injuries in the second wreck, officials say none appeared to be life-threatening.

Both investigations remain ongoing.

A portion of the bypass was closed temporarily due to the crashes.
