Leslie Gingrich was riding her Harley in Schuylkill County on June 4 when she hit a gully spanning both lanes of the road.

Gingrich was rushed to a hospital but succumbed to her injuries.

A PennDOT crew had excavated a trench at the site and filled it with stone, but residents say the stone washed away, leaving a ditch.

Residents say PennDOT knew about the hazard but did nothing to fix it. PennDOT says it’s investigating.
