A woman was killed late Sunday after a motorcycle she was riding as a passenger was struck by a car pulling out of a convenience store.

The woman, whose name was not released, was thrown from the motorcycle after the car struck the motorcycle about midnight at the intersection of Broadway and Extension roads. Mesa police said the car, driven by an 18-year-old man, was turning westbound onto Broadway after leaving the store.

The driver of the motorcycle suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to Detective Steven Berry, a Mesa Police Department spokesman.

The motorcyclist who was struck was riding alongside another motorcycle at the time of the crash. The other motorcyclist was able to avoid being hit by the car, Berry said.

Both the woman passenger and the driver of the motorcycle were not wearing helmets, Berry said. He also said both the driver of the car and the motorcyclist were impaired.
