CLIFTON — The victims of a weekend motorcycle crash in Clifton have been identified as Bangor residents.

Police on Monday identified the victims of the Sunday evening crash on Route 9 east as 40-year-old Jason Emerson and 36-year-old Elizabeth Gould.

Authorities said they were killed when their motorcycle struck a guard rail at about 6 p.m.

A witness reported that the motorcycle was speeding and passing other vehicles when it lost control on a curve, went into the oncoming lane, and struck the guard rail. Both riders were thrown and pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither victim was wearing a helmet.

The accident remains under investigation but police have said speed appears to be a factor.
