MACHIAS, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a woman has been killed and a man hospitalized after their motorcycle crashed on a rural road in western New York.

Troopers say a 43-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man were on the motorcycle when the man failed to make a curve in the Cattaraugus County town of Machias , 35 miles south of Buffalo.

Police say the bike left the road and hit some loose gravel before re-entering the road, where the man lost control, ejecting both people from the motorcycle.

Troopers say the woman died at the scene. The man is in critical condition at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo. Both are from Machias.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
