Gulfport Woman Killed After Falling Off Motorcycle

A Gulfport woman died Thursday night after falling off the back of a motorcycle. The 25-year-old woman had just left her home on Kelly Avenue to go for a ride with a friend.

Police say when she went to buckle her helmet, the high performance bike lunged forward, causing her to fall off and hit her head on the curb. She died of blunt force trauma.

The coroner's office has not released her name because they're still trying to notify her family.
