UPDATE (8/8/16): Family and friends of Shaunda Toft have told us that she passed away at the hospital tonight as a result of her injuries.
One person has died and another severely injured after a motorcycle crash early Saturday morning (8/6) in Wichita Falls.
The single-vehicle accident occurred just after 1:00 a.m. at the intersection of Harding Street and Thompson Road. The driver of the 2007 Yamaha motorcycle, identified as 37-year-old Josh Loudermilk, was traveling east on Harding St. with his fiancé, 38-year-old Shaunda Toft, on the back of the bike.
According to police, it appears as though Loudermilk attempted to turn right onto Thompson Rd when he hit a median causing him to lose control of the bike.
Both Loudermilk and Toft were thrown from the motorcycle. According to police, Loudermilk died at the scene as a result of massive trauma from hitting his head on a curb. Toft suffered severe head injuries and was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Josh and Shaunda were set to be married in Lima, Peru in just two weeks.
