On Monday, at 45th St. N. and Oliver near Bel Aire, a man died when he lost control of his bike and slid into an oncoming minivan.

Tuesday, officers running radar attempted to stop a speeding motorcycle. The driver sped off and stuck a curb. 35-year-old Brandy Spencer died at the scene of the accident. Her husband, 32-year-old William Spencer died at the hospital later the same night.

Wednesday, 47-year-old Duane Cool of El Dorado was killed when strong winds may have caused him to lose control of his bike at Old 254 and Ohio St. just east of Towanda.

Thursday, 55-year-old Robert Crandall struck a deer while riding his motorcycle on Pretty Prairie Rd in Reno County. He died the next day at a Wichita hospital.
