A New­ton County woman died Satur­day af­ter the mo­tor­cy­cle on which she was rid­ing was struck by a car on Salem Road.

Dianne K. Hickly, 64, was killed and her hus­band, Robert E. Hickly, 68, was se­ri­ously in­jured when their 2007 Honda Gold­wing mo­tor­cy­cle was hit by a 1998 Buick LeSabre driven by Kathy L. Nolan, 47, of Cov­ing­ton, said Lt. Paul Cosper of the Ge­or­gia State Pa­trol on Tues­day.

Robert Hickly, who was driv­ing, was taken to Wal­ton Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter; Cosper had no up­date on his sta­tus.

Nolan’s car left a shop­ping cen­ter near the Kirk­land Road in­ter­sec­tion when it hit the ride side of the mo­tor­cy­cle about 7: 30 p. m., throw­ing the Hicklys off the mo­tor­cy­cle, ac­cord­ing to Cosper.

Cosper said any charges are pend­ing while Spe­cial­ized Col­li­sion Re­con­struc­tion Team in­ves­ti­gates the crash. Pos­si­ble charges could be ve­hic­u­lar homi­cide in the first or sec­ond de­gree.

There have been nine fa­tal­i­ties in New­ton County so far this year. There were 13 fa­tal­i­ties in 2010.
